Re: Trippy colored landscape (more new images added)

The end product of a shorted or burned out circuit. Filament of ancient coffee maker?

Re: head of the ant (high res.)

Dramatic and technically impressive images. I like the black on black for this subject; makes him look a bit scary in the top image. It must be hard for him to see what he's eating!

Re: Trippy colored landscape (more new images added)

Hmm--small, mundane, irritating, formed by heat and involved with heat in its useful life, with a metallic look and sheen. Could it be a battery contact, or the contact button at the base of a lightbulb?

Re: Striped Bug (Graphosoma italicum)

Great composition and colors, beautifully executed. The symmetry of the two subjects makes a particularly appealing patten.

Re: More Lepidoptera

All very nice, but I particularly like the formal portrait of the lunar moth. Magnificent creature.

Re: Sleeping Bee

Thank you, Mark, but your kind comment is undeserved. Confession time: I never saw the bee until running the stack on the computer. Not long after dawn, the Althea bloom was found low to the ground, not fully opened, and I was intrigued by the radial pattern of the 5 petals and determined to shoot i...
