The late afternoon/early evening light in our backyard is often great for photos, and I got lucky when this fly landed in just the right spot to take advantage of that light.

I am a photographer living in Massachusetts and my passion is flowers. I take the time to reveal the special beauty of each flower and I hope that comes through as you look at my work.

    Yes, the fly is a nice touch with its iridescent wings, but what I like best about this image is the gentle echo of the main flower in the shadowed background flower. It’s a lovely and lyrical floral pose!

  • Thank you so much, Celeste. I got lucky with the pose – I was more focused on the main flower and the fly, so I didn’t realize that echo effect until I saw it on my screen!
