Disco Fever

I’m sorry, that was a typo….. it should have read Disco~phora. Now who’s the Common Duffer? I don’t think a film called Saturday Night Discophora sondaica tulliana would catch on, do you? But just in case, here it is:Discophora-sondaica-tullianaI was thinking of trying some abstract bamboo shots this morning but as soon as I arrived I was rudely interrupted by this Duffer.  And a jolly fine Duffer it is too. My abstract bamboo ultimately looked as if I had just been waving the camera around. And sadly that is exactly what I did:IMGL0279The dragonfly shots were a little more successful. I believe this is the bum end of a Blue Dasher. Blue DasherAnd a slightly more (or possibly less) flattering angle:Blue-Dasher2I think this dragonfly would get a lot more attention if it did not have such a silly scientific name: Brachydiplax chalybea flavovittata. Quite why the Blue Dasher union has forbidden full frontal posing I don’t know but clearly it is off limits.

And finally, a bamboo non-abstract that has just been given the Color Efex Pro treatment:Babmboo stack

  1. That background in the second Brachydiplax chalybea flavovittata (that just rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it?) is fantastic. So more pleasing it is. I really like the non-abstract abstract of the bulbous bamboo.

    • Thanks Steve. I wasn’t 100% happy with the position but the pond is fenced off. I tried over and through the gaps but there was always a challenge, including positioning the flash so the fence didn’t block the twin heads. I have a few bullfrog shots but can’t compete with yours.

I'd be delighted to hear what you think
