I have always wanted to photograph this insect in natural light ever since I saw it for the 1st time 2 years ago: https://www.flickr.com/photos/vipinbalig... My wish came true one morning when I found this guy on a Mango tree. He was still for a few seconds giving me just enough time to fire off 3 quick shots. Just look at this guy! His body is almost transparent including the internal organs!!! His shape and his very flat body is just fascinating...I am in awe of this insect. This insect is razor thin and is 1 cm in length approx.
Lat: 12.21, Long: 75.83
