3: iridescent insects - the auroran sunset
Here at abelard.org, we take a lot of photographs. Many of them are pretty. This is the third of what I hope will become a regular “photograph with little or no explanation or comment” feature.
First an amazing damselfly from abelard:
[The ultimate iridescent insect, a damselfly covered in greens, blues and even purples. Taken in France on the 28th June 2002.]
Then two somewhat less amazing insect pairs from the auroran sunset:
[An amazingly colourful fly sitting on an almost invisible grasshopper. Taken in France on the 29th August 2005.]
[Two beautiful green and gold iridescent beetles. Taken in France on the 27th August 2005.]
Both of my photos are somewhat of lucky finds: because the subjects are so small, in neither case did I know there were two insects when I tried to capture their wonderful colours.
