A White-banded Noctuid has big “eyes” to keep predators at bay but no antenna visible as they are kept folded until needed

Lens-Artists Challenge #197: The Rule of Thirds

Some rules are there for a reason and some are there to be broken with great effect.

The post in the centre but the Spangled Drongo was the subject

The spire is the imposing feature. Being in black and white I feel make it more so

Looking where you are going – gives a sense of movement

The same photographing flying birds. Sometimes having the bird in the centre shows off the birds features. I like having negative space in front when I can to indicate where the Square-tailed Kite is soaring, hunting for food.

One Paper Daisy in each third with room at the top to grow

Mostly flowers should be the centre of attention, especially roses.

Others always want to be the centre of attention. King Parrots can be clowns around my place

Is it the table and chairs that draw the attention or is it the shadows?

Hope my playing with the Rule of Thirds and trying to explain what I works.

Getting ready to enjoy my flesh

These I call B52’s as they are big and slow moving but when they get you you really know it

A B52 just minding its own business hoping I wouldn’t notice it on my boot

Look at the stinger on this one. These are the silent one you don’t know are there until they stick that stinger in.

This is another strong and silent type

Don’t let the pretty green eyes fool you. Look at the size of that drill
