Project 52 No 5 – backlit flies

20 05 2011

This is the final posting in my “bugs on plants” series this week.   Previous images include a true bug on a dandelion and a pair of Tibetan butterflies frolicking among ferns.  Today’s image shows the shadow of a fly perched on the other side of a plant.  This was taken in a weedy lot near my home last summer, which had gorgeous diversity of plants.

I liked this image for the dramatic green leaf with its yellow veins and red-trimmed edges, and how the fly’s shadow was so clearly seen through the leaf.

For folks in Canada, have a great Victoria Day long weekend!
