Dichro Green bug
on a very red flower

So while I was trawling through the archives, I found these images of a bug I took long ago. I rather like them, so I'm posting them.

I liked this picture better, but it was underexposed. A touch of my fave gimp tool, the curves tool, and it looks much better. Photographed 01jun2002, gimped 30mar2014

I just love this supersaturated color—which by the way, has nothing to do with me. It's all nature (well, and the algorithms that came with the camera, which would have been one of the nikon coolpixes, probably the 990...)

Here's another version. Really, I lucked out with the focus.
