From the speeding train...

Devi (Chennai, India) on 15 February 2018 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

As the train sped, I was trying to get a good shot of the tamarind trees outside..all the trees were replete with the fruits ! This single shot was the best among the rest....though I am not very happy with this image :)

When a camera or object moves, it's hard to get everyone in the picture good. The picture shows the moment I was taken and is good.

Hey, tamarin are small monkeys. Am I right? There are a lot of them in those trees. I just did not get that last comment.

You did very well considering how difficult it is to take a picture from a speeding train. I like it.
