Photography Fun with a Gorgeous Beetle
One day a beautifully colored beetle was spotted on our patio as the sunlight glinted off of its iridescent carapace. The insect was no longer alive but its exoskeleton was a thing of great beauty.
Nature is amazing in how she provides us with visual feasts in the tiniest of compositions as well as the grandest of landscapes. For people interested in photography there is an endless array of items to capture and present in various forms.
In this case after taking pictures of the vibrant colors of this lovely creature, I decided to play around with some photo editing techniques and what you see here is the result. This is actually part of the underside of the beetle.
Did you know that there are literally millions of beetles of various types and that they have existed for hundreds of millions of years? Some beetles are considered to be agricultural pests while others serve good purposes by way of how they live. They live in all areas of the world.
