   Some are very curious about the intruders who come and go into their home land. Looks like she is looking at this handsome guy
   who is walking towards her ;)

   Welcome to the photo series of Sinharaja Rain Forest Through My Lens.

   PS: Please do correct me if I’m wrong while identifying these creatures since I’m novice in this subject. Your critics are highly welcome


  1. Friend, you'd work for the National Geographic Magazine. :-)

  2. Guess you have taken it from the ground level, which makes the angle very nice.
    I usually like pictures of lizards in forests shot in the night. The dark background makes them look very attractive.

  3. o my!what a pic!!
    the expression on her face doesnt seem like she's seeing a 'handsome' guy ;-)

  4. wow! love the pinkish tone of the pic...
    seems like you've got one of those critter indexes too.. :D
    And a she-lizards idea of handsomeness is a lizard like creature (sorry, but you asked for it!)

  5. Wow, Great composition. I really like the lighting also. Super macro work.

    Still stuck in the garden? :P We'll meet up soon :)


  6. @paresh;
    Thanks for the comment. National Geographic’s and me? lol …. Thanks for the compliment =:D

    Thanks for the comment.

    Personally I like to photograph in natural light. But yes, if I get a chance to snap at night ill definitely give it a try and see the results. :)

    @md and silent;
    Exactly as I expected! … lol

    Let me give you a lil hint about the guy ;). I’m not talking about the “handsome” guy that you both are referring too. =:D hehe

    No silent, I don’t have a critter index yet. But I was lucky enough to travel Sinharaja with 5 of very professional wildlife enthusiastic friends. So I got the names of these critters from them.

    ** Thank you both for your interesting comments … =:D

    Thanks for your comment mate.

    Weather was so unpredictable that day and sometimes light got changed between two clicks. It was a great experience for me to work with damp weather and taking snaps while donating blood to my leech friends. =:D

    Now I’m stuck in Sinharaja ;) yeah sure will meet up soon :)

  7. Wow.. Sinharaja!!! Can't waitta see all the pics.

    And that's a cool pose for a lil lizard. Reminds me of T-Rex, an unusually slim one, in miniature. =D

  8. Thanks Harumi,

    Hope you are enjoying the series by now :D
