Insects: Power of Unity, Riot of Color and a Predator

Jitaditya Narzary

Is a traveller disillusioned by the familiar and fascinated with the unknown... and of course the founder of this blog.

I am posting a few random insect pics here along with a suave yellow frog that once ventured into the house during the rainy season.

Ants and the Caterpillar:

The power of unity.

Not sure but I think it was a ladybug. It was languishing in the ground when I saw it. Then I picked it up and put it on the flower to take another shot. (It was not harmed in anyway during the process)

Blue Butterfly:

It was the most colorful lepidoptera I’d ever seen. It was elusive, it never came close and finally settled on a jackfruit tree. Had to shoot it from a distance and crop the images.

Orange Butterfly:

It was a familiar one. But for a change it chose to offer a more interesting background.

Tiger Striped Insect:

Not sure what it is. But great colors.

Yellow Frog: The predator:

Finally the terminator to all of the above.
