So far yes. Besides, this particular photo you've taken is absolutely stunning.

Thanks for letting me post this - I've always called it miss muffet's spider. This was photographed near Pandu falls, MP (near Panna national park). The unexpected December drizzle caused those water beads on the web to form.

Oh Great and Miss Muffet, seems pretty cool in the centre of her web !

But after seeing the spider photo, I could not resist posting this one: Signature Spider, taken on 19 February, 2013 at (where else ) SGNP!



And the signature seems to be somewhat like 'Cunning Little Vixen'?

Tripsammy - this appears to be the 'Common Tiger' ; a butterfly that closely resembles the Monarch butterfly of north america which in turn resembles the Viceroy butterfly.

Jim Corbett is quite some place to find and photograph the 'common tiger' butterfly!

Where are you Nick-H, these days? Just today thought of mentioning you on 'Whom do you miss thread'!! Seems like you are on some interesting vacations?

I will try to edit the thread title, if can even now!

EDIT: Tried to edit the title...but in vain! If the Moderators feel they could make it more suitable, please do so!

Also @Peak, very busy? You can ID any of the photographs?

Go ahead, you can take the pick - after all I believe in 'team effort'!

First one seems really fun & the second one is all formal!
