Clearly Macro Monday



I just remembered I had these sitting in a file on my computer. This past summer, I found this fellow sitting on the bubbles in my kitchen sink. I plucked him out and snapped some photos. :0) Unfortunately, I think the bubbles did him in. :0(

  13. Never thought that I would consider as "beautiful" such an ordinary insect when I see it "live" ! You are a witch, you transfer ugly things into beauties !

  15. Those are amazingly clear and detailed shots... shame he didn't survive though but at least we got to marvel at his beauty.

  22. That is an awesome shot. I love the soft focus background, the way the wings seem to be glowing, the graceful curl of the antenna. Ethereal.
