I’d attended an audition by

Here’s Mohan Mudgalkar, introducing this learning tool:

And here are some of the participants, going through the audition:

It was a very interesting experience, though I was not chosen (I didn’t expect to be!) But in the process, I got to know someone who is the wife of one of my NTP and wildlife friends, too!

95% enjoyable,and the 5% is the unfriendly way they have organized the sales to the limited-audience plays at 10pm and 11pm…it is an illogical, user-unfriendly method.

Drama of Life and Death…near Ranganathittu, 16 July 07

July 17, 2007

I went to Ranganathittu area to do some birding and while I did have a lovely time, with all the usual birds on display, I also watched this little drama of life and death nearby….

On one of the weeds, I watched a butterfly alight on a flower. But inexplicably, almost as soon as it landed on the flower, the butterfly seemed suddenly to wilt…you can see it just hanging off the flower:

It then fell off altogether, and lay, dead or dying, on a leaf below. Intrigued, I decided to investigate. I gently held the flower to see what could have caused the death of the butterfly, which you can see lying (by now dead) on the leaf below:

All was revealed…from under the flower crawled the hunter, the predator, which had been lying in wait for just such an opportunity as the one that happened…

As soon as the butterfly landed, the spider bit it, and paralyzed the butterfly fatally. Even as I looked at it, it dropped off on to the leaf below to proceed to the meal:

Here’s a close-up of the predator..incredible, I could swear that was a “happy” face on the back of the spider!

I thought it was ironic to see a happy smiley face on the back of a creature which had just dealt a violent death to another…but on second thought, it was just a living creature getting a meal for itself, so I suppose, now that the meal was ready, a smiley wasn’t an inappropriate thing for the spider to have, as it went off for its lunch….
