From the most diverse group of animals....


Insects are the most diverse group of animals on the planet and include more than a million distinguishable species and represent more than half of all known living organisms. The number of extant species is estimated at between six and ten million, and potentially represents over 90% of the differing animal sub-kingdoms on Earth. The entire group is a very rich blend of beautiful, colorful and helpful members.

Aren’t they?

Ok, the coconut chutney recipe for you. This one is the easiest:
1/2 fresh coconut
2 green chillies
very little ginger
little coriander leaves
salt
Grind them together to make a chutney. Then take 1 tsp oil, heat it. Add 1/2 tsp. mustard seeds, 1/2 tsp udad dal, some curry leaves, 2-3 dry red chillies, a pinch of hing. Once the mustard seeds splutter, add to chutney, mix and serve.

Comparing to your other shots, these images are not clear. Probably you didn't use macro option to to capture these cats. So I suggest you to use macro option and your images will be more clear than mine.
