photoblog image Wings, please

Wings, please

When I grow up, I would like to have wings which I will use to explore the world.

I already ate all my greens, so can I now have my wish, please?

Very chubby critter
Ray: I think she had a good food source.
''Don't be in such a hurry you have to turn into a chrysalis for ages first.''
Fabulously sharp Ray and the greens and yellows are so subtle.

Ray: These kids...always in such a hurry to grow up! [grin]
Always look the life with children's eyes smile

I'm without voice in front of this perfect likey !!
Ray: You are very kind, Zebigleb.

Sometimes I think part of me has remained locked in "kid" mode! [grin]
He looks ready to turn into a chrysalis at any moment! Excellent shot Ray
Ray: Probably later today, I guess, cos there didn't seem to be any growing left to do.

Whaou, vraiment superbe !
Ray: Merci, rem la.
Wow, future butterfly.
Ray: Yes...and a beautiful one, no doubt! [grin]
I think she has had too many greens! I like the DOF on this.
Ray: Went side-on for a change, Nigel, to try to get all of the animal in reasonable focus.
Wow Ray, this is stunning! A likey for me.
Ray: Very kind of you, Richard.
It is a handsome critter, and the colours around it seem to work ok.
I love it's little feet. ?Good job, Ray.
Ray: Thanks, Mary. They are handsome critters for sure.

Amazing, Ray! Likey as well! Worthy of National Geographic
Ray: Much too kind, Jennie.Bit...I like it! [grin]
Amazingly detailed close-up Ray, well worthy of any natural history book.
Ray: A plumb big grub, Brian...might describe me, except that I am not also green [usually].
Beautiful macro shot Ray. Will look for future uploads.
Dave.
Ray: Thanks for your kind remark, David. As you will have noticed, I used a rather unorthodox "macro" lens for this shot.

Fat grub falls under influence of 100-400mm lens at close distance. [grin]
