Creatures that go through multiple forms are amazing. Imagine going from a caterpillar to a butterfly. Do they know they are going to make the change? – crawling along on branches eating, then being ‘reborn’ and swooping through the sky. Todays little guy was snapped still on the swan plant that they eat down here. Caught early in the morning, it was covered with dew, and unlucky to appear to have had something nibbling its wings overnight. Warming up as the sun arose, it looked like it was getting ready to take off.
Taken with the Ricoh GRD IV, on no modes, I love the bright rich colors.
This photo has great clarity! Wow.
