Kaleidoscope of Colour


Falling like a feather on a gentle breeze its graceful landing furthered my fascination.  The butterfly danced on the tree-fern softly unfolding its wings in a kaleidoscope of colour.

My camera’s viewfinder portrayed incredible detail as the once cocooned insect stared back at me. I could see a pooled honey combed eye reflecting the big expansive world while its thin legs tested the living landing pad.

The slowly flapping illusion drew me even closer as I silently tapped the button which froze the moment in time.

On Saturday I spent the day with Shawn, Mel and Zoe who were kind enough to show me the local sites Geraldton had to offer. I was really impressed with the scenery and look forward to returning to capture some seascapes as well as the Chapman Valley and beyond. If you haven’t already checked out their blogs – do it now! They both have some great shots.

This one was shot using the canon MPE-65 Macro (1-5x Magnification) handheld.
