I took these tonight - a large group of insects catching the sunbeams of the setting sun. See how closely they resemble fairies. You can see how the people of old might be amazed on seeing something like this. I think these pictures are great and because the camera hasn’t a fast exposure it blurs the insects into an almost mythical silhouette.

Caught on a gleam of light
Taken to wing in solar flight
To weave dances on the suns shadow
Delicate filigree shapes of magic
Swirl and shift ethereal shapes
Rise and fall in separate rhythms
Heralding now the close of day
But to dance on into the moonlight
For they are the flowers of summer
