Lal Bagh Botanical Garden, translated literally in to English as; "The Red Garden", is a well known botanical garden in Bangalore, India The garden was commissioned by the ruler of Mysore, Hyder Ali. It has a famous glass house which hosts yearly flower show. It also has an aquarium and a lake, and is one of the tourist attractions in Bangalore.

I just love going to the Lalbagh flower show held on Republic Day every year in Bangalore, it is not only about fancy exotic flowers arranged well in eye catching patterns, it is also for the crowd, the visitors milling around, the unusual moments, short eats and the whole aura around the place. I always try to get in early so that the butterflies are out in the slightly cooler period and the crowd is at its minimum, you can shoot with much hindrance.
