On Wings of Reflection

On our afternoon walkabout down a narrow footpath I spotted a Southern Hawker which obligingly landed on a nearby stalk for a while. The colours were blown out in the direct sunlight but on viewing the photo I could see the nearby green vegetation reflected on, or maybe refracted through, its normally transparent wings.

  1. Very nice, you would get the gold star on Monday for a macro of the wing.

  2. I should have kept it for Macro Monday Adrian ;)

  3. Hi John,
    Very nice photo. The wing detail is lovely!

  4. That was a very nice find on your walk John! Lovely photos too.

  5. Thank you John. It was a fascinating set of reflections / refractions.

  6. Thank you Jan. Not seen many dragons as yet, though it is still early round here.


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
