This small and beautiful spider was loitering around in my garden, when I was trying to shoot the small devil kept on jumping towards the lens (the best self-defense being the offence), I kept myself cool and waited an hour, after that it got exhausted and I could shoot it point blank.

His first exposure to the photography world was in the year 2012 when on his Son Aaryan’s first birthday one of his friend brought a DSLR for shooting and finally he got himself a Nikon D7000 by April 2012
