Caught In The Act

Caught In The Act

Caught in the Act. Or in flagrante delicto if you prefer Latin. And more familiar ‘Caught red handed.’

The photographs I took are not about any crime. Not ‘flagrante delicto.’ I have tried to catch a delectable moment.

Here are some:

While in Kew Garden many planes flew over my head. I wanted to catch the moment when it exactly was over my head. This was not easy because the plane flies away too fast and seeing its image in the LCD viewfinder in bright sunlight [it was so that day] is frustrating. Yet I tried my luck and this is what I clicked.


Spotting insects and bees on flowers was not a difficult job. With millions of flowers in bloom, the insects and bees, not to mention photographers, were having a great time. Here are two photographs. If you look carefully you will notice three insects and bees on the red flowers. And two on the white flowers.




I noticed that two bears were sleeping in the Woburn Sanctuary when I visited it. I wanted to get down and check if bears also snore. Wiser counsel prevailed, and I stayed inside the car.


While visiting Wimbledon I saw this in the window of a shop. What say you to that?


And this interesting moment in the fair in Wimbledon Village.


This video which I captured in Hounslow was very interesting.

This pic of grandmother and her granddaughter sitting behind a beautiful bush takes the cake!


Well, Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything. Aaron Siskind said it, not me, lest you catch me in the act of plagiarism.
