EXIT the DRAGON ... Mister Bubble ... all the world is a stage

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps [?]

staged image of a dead dragonfly I found in my yard - so beautiful in life , so profound in death - a warrior deserved of respect and a Viking's funeral for a magnificent creature - I love Nature ! An insect's lifetime consists of 4 to 5 months ( in this locale ) - a human's consists of 80 + years - Bon Voyage my winged friend - heck , I have 79 years to take images of the 2 legged folks !!!

Hello Lloyd. B - a little water in a pan with dish soap and food coloring - used a drinking straw to agitate the bubbles - taken outside in full sun - the starbursts are actually the sun reflected in the bubbles . Sunflower and dragonfly optional !

Might have to try that trick waldo there are plenty of black crickets around at the moment that i could use as subjects.

Throw in some clear / transparent marbles for added reflections and color Lloyd. B - perhaps a small Superman action figure from the kid's toy collection - never know what the results might be !
