My Images for 7 day Nature Photo Challenge
A few days ago I was invited by fellow traveler and blogger Pooja Bhatt to participate in 7 days Nature Challenge. The rules of the challenge are that you post one new image every day and nominate somebody else to take the challenge further. I was a bit reluctant to participate in the same as I have joined the 7-day nature challenge earlier also on the invitation of other friends. But Pooja insisted that I must share my images. So over a period of 7 days I shared images, but as always I did not further pass the challenge though you are welcome to take it further.
Before we begin you may ask if the nature challenge was on Facebook why I am sharing images from Instagram ? Well the answer is simple it is much easier to embed images from Instagram compared to Facebook ( for me at least ) and the same image was shared on Facebook also so I guess technically we are ok 🙂
Calliandra flower buds the second image in Nature Challenge where I was nominated by Pooja Bhatt. This picture was clicked in our society garden. These Calliandra flowers are a favorite of Sunbirds my primary subject. But you will need to click to see images of Sunbirds on the flower sucking nectar. Why is the background red: The completely open calliandra flower is blood red. I carefully chose a bud that had a fully blooming open RED flower in the background. As I was using a 300 mm lens the background got totally blurred due to a very short depth of field with a 300 mm lens. When I was processing the image I corrected the angle of the bud to make it perfectly vertical and reduced the clarity of the background a notch with the help of clarity slider in Lightroom. Go ahead click this post to see some pictures of open Calliandra flowers with not only Sunbirds but also some honeybees in action > https://shar.es/1l2RSv #nature #flowers #buds #naturechallenge #garden #natureinmybackyard #photography #picoftheday #lonelyplanetindia #lpindia #calliandra #nectar #naturephotography #bbctravel #red #sodelhi #delhigram #Gurgaon

#Day 4 - #NatureChallenge Karma Chameleon From the time of Arjuna and Dronacharya, masters have told disciples to focus on eye. Same thing was told to me by my mentor who gave me first lessons in photography. I dedicate this image to him as he is recuperating in ICU after a major surgery. It is an old image but one of the first both of us felt happy about. #Chameleon #reptiles #Nature #NatureInMyBackyard #Natgeo #Lpindia #Huffpostgram #wildlife #wildlifephotography

So dear reader with this I close this post about my 7 images that I shared as part of the Nature Challenge on Facebook. Though the challenge was floated on Facebook I shared the images on both Facebook and Instagram. I am not nominating anybody as I am not sure if you have participated in the 7 day nature photo challenge on Facebook earlier or not, so to take this further you are welcome to join the same. The rules are simple and given below , you can share it on your Facebook and quote me as somebody who asked you to participate in the challenge and further nominate your friends.
I was nominated by desi Traveler to do the Nature Photography Challenge. I will post a nature photo each day for 7 days and nominate a new friend each day.
So here we Go !! Today is my First day 😀
Further I will like to nominate XYZ to take it further.
As simple as that and you are set to go and share your nature pictures and involve your friends in a nature challenge. Much better than posting and sharing those hoax status updates about privacy on Facebook. Let us share some pictures that depict the beauty of nature around us.
But before we sign off here is a bonus image that shows the colors of nature I recently clicked in Himachal Pradesh on a recent trip in Dagshai.
I promise that I will not sell, rent, or donate your email to anybody
