Huge grasshopper on a motor scooter pillion seat

Update: The title of the original post was "Guess what?" to check the blogger friends' keenness. Now it has been changed to "Huge grasshopper on a motor scooter pillion seat" for SEO purpose. The content of the original post follows…

Any guesses why we took the below photo? Anyone? No? Oh, I see some hands rising. Freely tell what you think. Scroll down to see why :)

Huge grasshopper as a pillion rider

The reason is the pillion rider. See the above photo again. The pillion rider is a huge tamarind colored grasshopper! Do you see it? See it in a closer photo below.

Some of you might be interested in seeing how creepy it really looked. So the following close-up photo of the huge grasshopper is just for those of you :)

Thanks to Megha; she noticed this creeper when we were heading towards the lush greens near the old Katraj tunnel in the elephant mountain. The photos above are taken by her only :)

Weekend Fun :: Funny lines about husband and wife mostly

I'm starting something new. I have named it Weekend Fun. It will mostly consist of email forwards and funny things around. Have you seen the last week's Weekend Fun - Cartoon of the year - Kid planning a career in organized crime!?

This week's Weekend Fun is on husband and wife. Had received this as an email forward. Enjoy… :)

Q: Why doesn't law permit a man to marry a second woman?
A: Because as per law you cannot be punished twice for the same offence!

Man: Is there any way for long life?
Dr: Get married.
Man: Will it help?
Dr: No, but the thought of long life will never come.

Why do couples hold hands during their wedding?
It's a formality just like two boxers shaking hands before the fight begins!

Wife: Darling today is our anniversary, what should we do?
Husband: Let us stand in silence for 2 minutes.

It's funny when people discuss Love Marriage vs Arranged.
It's like asking someone, if suicide is better or being murdered.

It is difficult to understand GOD. He makes such beautiful things as women and then he turns them into wives.

Before marriage, a man will lie awake all night thinking about something you say.
After marriage, he'll fall asleep before you finish.

There's a way of transferring funds that is even faster than electronic banking. It's called marriage.

Girlfriends are like chocolates, taste good anytime.
Lovers are like PIZZAS, Hot n spicy, eaten frequently.
Husbands are like Dal RICE, eaten when there's no choice.

Man receives telegram: Wife dead-should be buried or cremated?
Man: Don't take any chances. Burn the body and bury the ash.

Prospective husband: Do you have a book called 'Man, The Master of Women'?
Salesgirl: The fiction department is on the other side, sir.

There was this guy who told his woman that he loved her so much that he would go through hell for her. They got married and now he is going through hell.

Fact of life: One woman brings you into this world crying & the other ensures you continue to do so for the rest of your life!

Come, visit my Western Ghats between June and September; I bet you'll be mesmerized by its stunning beauty.

Dog that walked on muddy water [Photographed near Bhuleshwar temple]

Unexpectedly, this black furred dog moved in front of us, when we, riding on our motorbikes, took a halt near Bhuleshwar temple. She was looking at us as if she knew us for a very long time! She wanted to be a friend. We could not take her home, but could take her snap as her emotional memory. She followed us for a couple of kilometers, and we took her few more photos.

Flight of a falcon high above Sinhgadh

I'm not sure about the species of this bird. Is it a falcon? We spotted it flying high above the tops of Sinhgadh. The photo is deliberately kept vertically long cropped. It has been a long time I have posted such kind of a photo. See Long-tailed Shrike for example.

Friends, to give you a glimpse of monsoon, here is a photo from the last year. It's from a location near Tung fort. I couldn't click today being full day in office :( In the photo, it's not morning. It's peak sun above those heavy clouds!

Perfect location for building a house

I know, the small house in the picture is almost not noticeable. But that is the intention. I want to show the location more than the house. I feel this is the perfect location for building a house. Of course, if I ever make it one day, it will be a 100% naturally made house with its looks perfectly merging with the surrounding; I don't want it to be highlighted in the natural scenery. Oh fool me, do I have so much money? Why am I dreaming?
