While some photographers complain that they don’t have an expensive kit to take amazing images, this photographer chose to just use his mobile phone and take breathtaking macro images. I’m not joking, Yes! he does macro photography through mobile and mobile alone. No tripod, DSLR, ring lights, flash etc., but just him, his mobile phone and the subject. The quality of macro photography he does is just incredible. I hereby feature the most talented Macro photographer – Jyothish K Sanil. I wish him all the very best and I have no doubts he will reach greater heights.

Editor’s Note: I have handpicked some top shots of Jyothish and sharing it with you all to see and cherish the beautiful macro images. Jyothish himself has narrated about each image and I preferred to keep it in his own words (I liked the way he narrated each of the moment) rather than doing editorial corrections.
Featured Image#1 | Fall Webworm (Hyphantria cunea Drury)
I shot this worm from the plantain leaf near the house. He was trying to find food on the face of sunlight at the time I was watching. At this point I took the shot by placing camera across the sunlight.
Featured Image #2 | Robber Fly (Asilidae)
I was walking through the woods for taking photographs. meanwhile I noticed a Robber fly which is having long pretty transparent wings and massive globular eyes and it seems to be a machine in micro vision .It was having some insect from its own genus.
Featured Image #3 | Weaver ants (Oecophylla)
It was a shining day and I noticed an interesting range of view that sun rays were passing through the body of an ant which was sitting in the sunshine on the branch of a tree and was passively enjoying the sunbath. The vision seems to be the x-ray of its body.
Featured Image #4 | Leaf Frog
To capture the eager look of the frog which was resting on the plantain leaf I approached it really slowly and copied the beautiful frame in my camera.
Featured Image #5 | Bush Frog
In the night that I went out for taking pictures, I came to notice a frog that is resting on a leaf. It have spectacular eyes and I took the photograph of the beautiful scene with the help of camera flash.
Featured Image #6 | Common grass yellow (Eurema hecabe)
A bright yellow colored moth came to my sight when I was in my garden. It landed onto the bush plant of my garden. I got curious about its color which resulted in taking this picture. I used flashlight of my camera for a near to perfect capture.
