Dust in the wing...

    Newer Older

    "...all I have is dust in the wing" :-) (Sung to the tune of the classic song by Kansas)

    I didn't get to process any of the shots I took yesterday, so I'm posting something from my summer archive. It's yet another macro of a Red-veined darter (Sympetrum fonscolombii) male (near 2:1 magnification, no crop). Click here for more photos of the same species in my photostream.

    Best viewed Large, On Black.

    I'm extremely busy this week, so I'm afraid I won't have much time to flickr... On Thursday I'm flying off to Luxembourg and I'll be returning on Sunday night, so I'll probably see you all next Monday. Have a wonderful week :-)
