Beach Remnant

While walking the beach at Gull Lake early one morning before most alarms have gone off and the dew still heavy, I came across a remnant of a dragonfly. The ants had made off with most of the insect, but not the wing.

I took my friend Gary Kuiken out to Gull Lake this afternoon as he heard I had found some Sparrow’s-Egg Lady Slipper orchids about a week ago and really wanted to see them and make a few images. Unfortunately, they were almost all done blooming, but we managed to locate a few decent specimens after a bit of scrounging around and he made some nice images. I made a few exposures of them  myself a few days back when I first located them as seen below:
