Anther dancer



It's a challenge to show the iridescence of a flower petal -- the way light, as in oil painting, passes into the object before bouncing back off suspended pigments and dazzling our eyes. This photo missed catching some of the sparkling light, but it didn't miss catching a busy little anther dancer finding its target.

I love nature in photography, especially black and white. Recently, I have begun playing with drawing in photoshop. When I have created something to my satisfaction, I'll post it. Have you ever tried using a drawing program, Lori?

Now, if a bee and a clover make a prairie (clover alone if you haven't bees)...what sort of landscape do you suppose a poppy and a bee make?
