A little bird with a big set of lungs sat singing atop the neighbor’s roof yesterday.
Sometimes beauty can emerge from even the most ignominious end. This damselfly past fell from the plastic cover for the garage light while replacing a bulb. Low-slanting fall sunlight pouring through its wings spilled an iridescence onto the white paper below it, like the most subtle stained glass. Too subtle, truly, for our pixel catchers to render.
Lots of sun-made silhouettes in this week’s challenge, including our first entry. Let’s give the moon its due.
Other silhouettes from this week’s challenge:
Infrared is fascinating for the fantasy quality it lends to images. There’s a lot going on in this image, it’s also somehow meditative as the eye wanders through it.
Hands can tell as much about a person as his or her face.
This black and white (zebra) jumping spider was clambering all over the big green garbage can on this warm fall day. (With highs near 80, it was a great time to give the cars one last wash before the cold of late fall came rushing through.) Couldn’t tell if he was curious or courageous or both, but when approached by a photographer many times his size, he always turned to face the lens, even appearing to look over his shoulder to keep all his eyes on the big galoot.
This morning’s walk turned up plenty of texture.
