Little Lady by Melinda Potter

Currently unavailable for purchase

Today my young son saved this lady bug from certain death. I was outside with him while he swam, trying to force myself to be creative when the 911 emergency happened. I quick made a nice golden environment with my bag of tricks and shot as she recovered, and dried her wings. It was very exciting and joyous to watch her fly away.

I like to shoot
light playing off objects and nature in interesting and wonderful ways. The simplicity and complexity of the beauty that is all around us everyday.
