The first thing I thought of before even seeing your title was, "Me and my shadow!" Cool shot!

My son is sitting with me and he started shouting, "Mommy, look at that bug!!!" He loves it...as do I! You'll have to check out my latest post about the two really great bugs he found over the past couple of days!

Great shadows! The last shadow almost looks like a cartoon, very cool.

Do check out the book, B is for Bufflehead. The photos are beautiful, it would be a great ABC book for a child.

Catherine said...

great shot - love the colours and high definition....

Dianne said...

the details are amazing!

Ralph said...

The insect offers a shape of intricate detail, and wonderfully replicated in shadow. We have an aversion to bug it seems, almost finding no use at all for all of them.

But when a beautiful capture like this appears, I think I may have to reassess the 'eww' factor about bugs and enjoy their unique beauty as you have captured...

As long as you don't post pics of spiders and their shadows i should be in good shape!

I am impressed with the vividness and clarity of these shots!

I ONCE HAD A SHADOW

I once had a shadow—or did she have me?
My shadow and I could never agree.
I would say something, she’d say the reverse;
Our arguments flared, my lips I would purse,
Refusing to speak to her anymore—
So my shadow got up and marched out the door!
I have not seen her from that day to this—
That’s one stubborn shadow I surely don’t miss!

That's one cool critter! I love the contrast with the green!

Hey Harriet said...

Nice capture! I enlarged him and I feared he was going to jump through the screen and eat me. Thankfully he didn't!

Great shadows!
