Amber Rhinestones; for Mellow Yellow Monday and Macro Monday
Its fluted yellowish striped wings
studded with amber rhinestones
captured light from the window landscape
as my camera harvested its beautyI don't know how long its been in my sewing box, or even where it came from, but I suspect its a left over treasure, a tiny two-inch souvenir from my antique period when I had a little shop for a couple of summers. While lying amid my sewing things its semi transparency can be seen.
When held up to the full light it takes on a trans- formation of beauty, changing its appear -ance with the direction and intensity of light that it encounters and absorbs.
How pleased I am that Drowsy Monkey of Ontario has created this relatively new meme, Mellow Yellow Monday. Its an inspirational place to post things that are yellow and also a place to view other beautiful 'yellows' posted to 'Mellow Yellow Monday' Just click on its highlighted name or on the badge in the side bar to get there.
And for more macro shots you can go to 'Macro Monday' to see some really close, close up photos! Just click on the highlighted link or on the logo in the side bar.
