Perfect Match

Perfect matches in nature. These are mostly photos that have caught my eye because of colour matching but this first photo is about shape and pattern. This moth with its natural camo colours could be a mascot for the Air Force! Big thank you to the photographers who have kindly allowed me to use their... Continue Reading →
