This lovely insect was seen at Shilparamam on Sept-2. It was resting on a blade of grass. It was difficult to shoot without disturbing it. It took several seconds before I could get my mobile from the bag. I took 7 blind shots - 2 were blurred and 5 were fine. The close movement disturbed the insect and it took off. Though it looks like a dragonfly, its flying style was like a butterfly. It fluttered around the spot several minutes and settled down. Now the position was better for a shoot. As I moved the camera closer, it took off again. I did not want to bother it any more..

Mister Bright, our four-legged friend. We have been seeing him since a little pup. He loves the construction site opposite our apartment. He goes around the site as though he's a supervisor :)
Several months ago, we fed him a pack of biscuits near our apartment gate. We left while he was still munching. By the time we reached our flat in second floor, he too had reached the end of the aisle. I'd to chase him away leat some resident complains about a 'wild beast' prowling around in the building.

That's our group.. 12 members in all.
The resort staff welcomed us with soft drinks. There were no activity itinerary as such, we were given total freedom and left to ourselves. Most of us were eager to get into the water. However cotton garments not allowed for water games . So we all visited the resort store to buy nylon garments. Besides the store there was a tiled roof shelter for visitors, we spent a while there and took few snaps.
Next we all headed to the swimming pool. I didn't enter the pool. I was busy in taking pictures.
Four members of our group falling backwards into the pool.They were trying other kind of stunts and posing for pictures. In all I must have shot 300 pictures water games.
This is one of the poses where the credit goes to the guys carrying the burden! :)
Then we rushed to the water games, the first one was Columbus. This game involved riding a dinghy on a pair of opposite slopes. This ride was quite scary.... one of my colleague was not willing to try it. Finally we convinced him, he enjoined it and went for four rides. After the tug of war this was my next game I rode this two times and enjoyed it.
Our group posing under the umbrella fountain.Check out three guys from the right are sitting on one persons leg. So again the person carrying the burden needs to be cheered....!! Some guys always want to be burden to others ;)
By 4 PM there was a dance session in the hall. The DJ played Telagu numbers to which our group danced. By 5 o' clock it was time for snacks and tea. As usual towards the end of the outing we had group photo sessions.
A collage of few good poses.
