Macro & Mellow Yellow Monday *Mating Eastern Forktails*


MellowYellowMondayBadge

This isn't a true "macro" photo by the actual definition of macro photography. However, I think I can get this one to slide through, since the main subject of the photo is a pair of mating Eastern Forktail damselflies, and they are rather small critters.

When I took this image, being the bug addict I am, I, of course, was focused on photographing the mating pair. Yes, I realize this, once again, makes me look like a voyeur. Will I get arrested for posting bug porn on the web? Anyway, as I was saying... I was focused on photographing the damselflies. Later, when I looked at the image on my computer, I realized that I got some really cool bokeh too! :-)

We'll let you slide on the macro. It's close enough and a well done photo.

Awesome photography……..the only thing I don’t like about them is that I didn’t shoot them.
