Wee beastie

Post by Matt Quinn »

I didn't notice this little critter until I had downloaded the files. Nature's camoflauge. Matt

Terrific picture overall, beautifully finished, nice bokeh, and the bonus bug! (OK) I tried to figure out what your weekend beastie is but the best I can suggest is that its translucency suggests it's a nymph of some bug. (?)

That's a fine one, Matt, and I missed it the first time round. The colors are scrumptious and the delicate beastie is nicely hidden within the beautiful bloom. Well spotted and taken.
