It's amazing how nature betters everything isn't it. We couldn't make anything so beautiful or perfect, even with all our technology.

Insects are works of art, really. A miniscule study in perfection.

These beautiful pictures show exquisite detail and a sublime stillness in the subjects and in the photographer. I love them

Love dragonflies...such intricate, lacy wings! The Green Darner Dragonfly is our state insect here in Washington state.
Beautiful photos
