I have no clue what this fellow's scientific name is. He ( along with some of his friends) was busy inspecting the finer cracks on some dry cakes of cow dung that were lying around near a fern tree in the Botanical Garden, Ooty. My assignment was to do some macro shots on insects. I didn't have a macro lens (its on my wish list though). So there i was, lying flat on my tummy, struggling with a 70-200mm lens (the long, heavy kind) trying to get a macro shot of some blue-alien-flies (minding their own business) at least 30cm away!
