dreaming on a tea-tree bud
Stonebow, Tasmania, AustraliaFuji HS30 with Raynox 250
I write stories. Sometimes I take photos.The photos of me were taken by Ron CoThe art is by Sergei RukavishnikovI’m an Australian, and I thank Muds for that.
OH WOW!! is it not just beautiful, did it open it’s wings at all for you? Just adore these creatures they remind me of finding gemstones in a creek bed where they have been almost polished by past water. Just beautiful and I thank you…….Ron xxx
It stayed there the whole time, a very co-operative model, and if I knew what it wanted for Christmas I’d get it as a thank you for the photos :)) I think it’s this one that looks rather like a helicopter in flight. They are beautiful gems ….. thank you, Ron :))

Wow pretty awesome bug and capture!
Thank you, RIta ….. it’s one of the more elegant ones with quite a sense of style, I think :)
Outstanding clarity Alenka
Thanks, Julie ….. the tea-tree bud and the insect were bigger than the wildflowers and insects I’ve been trying to photograph.
All you wanted was this GORGEOUS beetle? Well, tell mehow did that work out for you…;)))))))))He is rather GORGEOUS, I must say!!!Peace,sass
:)))))I think I took the photo just before Christmas and imagined this little beetle as a little kid beetle, wishing his Christmas wishes. For the beetles, I think they got what they wanted in the abundance of nectar flowers that were blossoming at that time.
