A couple weeks ago, I was walking around in my family’s prairie and spotted this tiny silhouette. The morning sun was shining through the leaves of a stiff goldenrod plant and a fly was (apparently) warming itself in those rays. Since I was on the opposite side of the leaf from the fly, I was able to sneak up, get my tripod set up, and take a couple photographs before it flew off.

Interesting. The leaf structure is quite nice. Good photo.
Amazing! Never had that happen and certainly not when the camera was handy.
