A Halloween Pennant (Celithemis eponina) and its “shadow” on the beach at Bahia Honda State Park, Big Pine Key, Florida, on Feb. 14, 2017. Not until I saw this did I imagine that the wings of a dragonfly, with the sun just right, might project like celluloid.
So, in real life, this was no digital dragonfly. It was like an old motion picture.
Happy Halloween, everyone!
Lovely image Bryan!
Thanks, Brian. Means a lot coming from you.
Love this! Amazing– I’ve never experienced this!
Yeah, it can happen in Maine! 🙂
that is a sensational photo
You have such an artist’s eye! I don’t believe I’ve ever even seen color in a “shadow” before.
I thought this was a Bryan Photoshop special until I checked Google. Sorry to doubt you, but you do have a reputation. This is one cool beast. Thanks for the treat on this tricky day.
Love this. Happy Halloween and eternal good health to you.
Perfect: a trick that’s a treat!
Love it! Thanks, Bryan.
Love and spooky to you, Bryan!
