MACRO MOMENTS WEEK 32: Western Pygmy Blue

Let’s get small. These mighty folks are N. Am’s smallest – about the size of a fingernail. The top side of the wings are a lovely mix of a black/white boarder with dark copper & rich blue hues. I’ll be damned if I can get that shot, so here’s the underside. Not a bad consolation prize.

My photo #2 for Musin’ With Susan weekly macro challenge. Subject – birds. 

El Chapo the Budgerigar Parakeet. He appeared in the backyard one day, stayed for a few, and was gone. 

Not a true ‘photo macro’, taken with a iphone6 close-up. I used bird seed to charm him in my general direction.
