Beauty in the Broken

IMG_0306A sudden flash of shimmery blue caught my eye. Grabbing the camera, I cautiously moved in closer, attempting to focus. Blues are among the hardest for me to photograph. The beautiful shimmer makes focusing difficult and I see very few of them around the area. I was hoping he would not fly away before I captured his illusive beauty.

Then he turned and showed me the battle scar. What a trooper.IMG_0328

He posed so proudly, but would not let me get too close before gracefully flitting away once again.

IMG_0323I felt the awe and wonder of having seen something quite magnificent in so delicate a form. IMG_0329

This may be a new one for my camera to capture. I am thinking he is a blue spotted purple.IMG_0317
