male Roseate Skimmer
When I first saw this Roseate Skimmer I was surprised I’d never noticed the color before. Now I see them all over.
The light angle wasn’t very good. I couldn’t get the true deep color.
Nature has it all over us…we still can’t design an airplane or helicopter that is as efficient as a dragonfly.
