Weekly Photo Challenge: Illumination

Posted on Updated on

This week’s photo challenge is a doozie.  Illumination.  Check it out  here.  Going through my photo files, I  had a devil of a time chosing one that said ‘light’ or ‘illumination’ to me.  After much hand wringing, and several vodkas, I finally came up with this.  Hope you like it.

This insect on a leaf, backlit by the sun is an example of illumination in nature.
