Default Basil bee

The basil, called Tulsi in India, is a plant that can be found in all homes in India. The flowers are tiny and dry into small seed pods. A few pictures of the basil flower:

The flower has a visitor:


Mired in pollen:


Seed pods each of which contains a seed about the size of the dot in the colon mark:


Hope you like these.

Nice shots mate!

Did you use raynox 150/250 or LC55?
If yes, where did you buy it from in India?

Thank you. These were taken with Raynox 250 attached.

Virat, I got the lens through ebay Global Easy Buy. Cost me Rs4,000, arrived within a week of ordering. (That's roughly 88 USD, as against the price of 60 USD, but includes customs levy and handling charges - I think it is reasonable, as I was looking for this or LT55 for quite some time and could not find a source in India). I have ordered the Pemaraal adapter directly from the company (as it was not available through ebay) and hope to get it in a week or two. Without the adapter, you can still snap the Raynox on to the hood adapter, but the short distance prevents the camera lens from extending beyond 2x zoom. The pictures are my first ones with Raynox, within the 2x zoom.
