Macroday: Best of 2005

Tiffany lampshade (Macro), 2005 Posted by Picasa
"His talent was as natural as the pattern that was made by the dust on a butterfly's wings. At one time he understood it no more than the butterfly did and he did not know when it was brushed or marred." ~ Ernest Hemingway (American novelist and short-story writer, Won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954, 1899-1961)
A decorative intricate design in the shade of a tiffany-style lamp. While the overall pattern of the lampshade does not remotely look like an insect, the colors and dark black "veins" separating the pieces of stained glass reminded me of the pattern and colors in a Monarch butterfly. This was one of my favorite macro shots of the year.

This was previously submitted to MacroDay in June for the topic "pattern"; now re-submitted to MacroDay for topic "best of 2005". (end of post)
