Here’s a hoverfly on a California poppy. I think that’s salvia in the background. Notice how the fly mimics a bee or wasp with the yellow and black on the abdomen. Neat! I like the little pollen grains on the petals, too.
This one kinda speaks for itself. So I’ve not got much to say – except I wish you could see it on a huge monitor (rather than your phone). Knocked a little off the right side, but the detail is remarkable.
I like the colors in this one. Looks like the dragonfly and the rock were cut from the same elemental cloth. Or something. The textures are a little weird and it didn’t really entirely reflect what I saw – or, better, the feeling looking at the photo isn’t exactly what I felt when I saw it with my face-camera.
Odd that. Normally, it’s pretty close – the feeling that gets regenerated when I see a shot. Usually quite parallel. Hmmmmmm… Something to ponder.
Probably my fondest wish for the site – that you feel what I do (or at least something similar) when I shoot (and see the shots again).
