Every single tryst with nature gives an experience beyond my imagination, revelations that surprise me time and again to an extent where, I have started to believe that this is the only ‘CONSTANT’!
In the image: A tadpole in it’s egg, the size is of a small pearl. This is the closest I have gotten to the magic of creation so far! It took me about an hour to get these shots, thanks to the continuous rains of Western Ghats and my ‘yet to get there’ macro photography skills!
I am told that this clutch of eggs (there were about a hundred eggs in this clutch) could be a week old and apparently they have an average incubation period of about four to five weeks.

Special thanks to @HemantOgale and Shubham Alave, from Ogale’s Whistling Woods, Amboli in Maharashtra, for all their guidance, direction and support without which this kind of an experience is beyond imagination.
PS: All necessary precaution was taken to ensure that there was no damage to these eggs and habitat, whatsoever!
