Small new worlds

In my four days' absence from home, a whole new world seems to have sprung up in my garden. I returned expecting signs of neglect but the plants seem to have thrived on the monsoon rains and many new creatures have crept, fluttered or crawled their way into the little terrace garden. Many had never seen me before and were obviously irritated at this heavy footed intruder peering into their tiny, comfortable homes.

We all know that insects see and sense things differently from us, but it is never more evident than when one tries to take those close up shots of them and their environment. Trying to capture this while they are fluttering with the breeze, gliding through air currents or crawling to a safe place is not very easy but it's certainly a lot of fun.
