Ready for Liftoff

I remember well the day in July of last year when I took this photo. After half an hour of chasing dragonflies around with a macro lens this shot was more relaxed as I caught my breath a bit and pondered what horrible microbes might be festering in the bottom of my shoe so recently filled with swamp water.

Call me old-fashioned, but I couldn’t help but think of old Navy Corsairs waiting to take off from the deck of an aircraft carrier.


  1. Reblogged this on Let's Get Political and commented:
    I love the reference to Navy Corsairs and Carriers [targets in submarine lingo], but I also find myself amazed at the macro photography displayed via this website and simply feel compelled to share it with a wider audience. Please give the site a visit and go to the gallery section. I doubt that you will be even the slightest bit disappointed. Very well done!

  2. Exceptional macro work…this post is terrific, but the entire site is a must see. Thank you for sharing your art and skill.

  3. this is awesome. the detail in the wings . . . seriously. i love. my hubs and father-in-law both fly, and i totally get the corsair reference. lovely imagery.
