On The Edge


A Day with The Dragonflies

I went to a little park yesterday on a totally different quest.  But there were so many dragonflies darting around that I had to try to capture a few shots.

Morpho

This is one of the largest butterflies in the world and pretty unique too. Its outside wings are a dull brown camouflage.

But this is what you see with wings unfolded. These blue, iridescent scales reflect sunlight and almost glow.

Bright!

This is quite a departure from my norm.  But, yes,  it did start with one of my photos.  Because I have so many butterfly photos already, I wanted to experiment to see if could achieve something different and ta-da, here it is!
