Obsessed with details :-)

Thats some variety of the centipede, sadly thats all I know about it. Need to work on my animal kingdom knowledge :-) But its commonly found in the rubber plantations of Kerala. We used to be dreaded of this harmless creature when we were kids. On being touched with a stick, it used to curl up into an ugly roll, followed by letting out a nasty smell. But a closer look makes me realize that its a beautiful creature after all.

This pic is a great tool - it works well when I have to scare my Mom or sis :-) and when I tell them that I actually leaned down close to it get this shot (the focal length will tell you the story :D), they get all the more horrified.

Hope to catch up an everybody's work - its been long!

I used to hate anything worm/snake-like, Thomas. A real phobia. I'd cover my face with my hands if a snake was on TV, peeking through with a blurred look to see when it was gone. But I've learned over time to calm myself down and get over the phobia, because there's so much intricate beauty in these creatures. Even the way they curl up into a ball...and then die.

Anyway, thanks for the rant, both ways! smile
