Photo Friday: Back Drops

September 8, 2017

Sometimes, humid mornings bring out more than spider webs, and foggy lenses.  This particular morning, the humidity had left some water drops on the back of two Japanese beetles, which brought out the color on their wings.

I don’t usually see ladybugs this early in the Summer, but I saw this one on my way home from work.  I just love the red wings, and white head.

Photo Friday: Hitting Gold

July 29, 2016

I love dragonflies.  They are harmless to humans, and they eat mosquitos and black flies.  Dragonflies come in a variety of colors, and they make great photo subjects.

This week I was at Mill Creek park, shooting every dragonfly that would sit still long enough, when I saw something golden cross my path.  I went to where it landed, and saw a black dragonfly, with golden wings.  This was something I had never seen, so I started snapping.

After 10 good shots, I found one that was exceptionally clear, so I have chosen this as the photo of the week, and my favorite shot of the month.
