    Hi Santhosh,
    Your images and narration are quite compelling.There is a correlation between the two which at times lacks in some of the blogs I have gone through.Like your nature expedition,let your blog too flourish like the wilderness.

    Greetings Mr. Santosh. I am Subhash from IISc. Just now i came across your writeup about plant hoppers at jlrexplore.com. I felt really happy to see the narration and observations which I have also been doing. I wanted to inform you one detail. The egg shells which you actually see are not of Planthopper Nymphs. Those are by some other insects…. At present I am writing a project proposal to study this interaction.

      Thank you Subash. Glad that you liked it. And, sorry about the error in there. That is very interesting and would be great to know more about what was going on actually. Will wait for your proposals then :-)
