Dreams of Coloured Yew ...

Post by MarkB1 »

This little fella got lost one day, climbed onto my foot and, weary of the trek across the great waste of concrete asked for hospitality from a fellow traveler and for me to point the way, since I am so tall and can see so far, he said.

How could I refuse? I gave him some colour to play in before feeding and watering and sending on his way, out into the wilds of the garden where he promptly dug down below the grass and into the soil - built for digging, he was right at home and soon disappeared from sense. Or in sense. Hmmm!

Could be she.

This is a very nice series of images. Number 1 and #3 are my favorites. I can see Rik wanting to do a full series of image stacks of this beetle! :D Well done, Mark.

The worst day photographing dragonflies is better than the best day working! :)

The colors fit beautifully with the background, very beautiful and very interesting esp the shape of the compound eyes, are they kidney shaped eyes ? Have one frame of them ?

I can't find it now but I remember seeing the eye beneath the plate and it looked round. What you see is a small segment.
