The symmetry of wings

Symmetry(noun): the quality of something that has two sides or halves that are the same or very close in size, shape, and position; the quality of having symmetrical parts.

For this challenge, share an image of symmetry. Don’t limit yourself to architecture — you can bend this theme in any way you’d like.

A portrait of your twins? A window grille? The yellow lines of a busy road? A row of sharp points along a metal fence? Let the world inspire you. So says Cheri Lucas Rowlands at the Daily Post.

I rummaged through my photos looking for symmetrical images and failed – I’m the one who takes wonky horizons so symmetrical and I don’t really work!

Eventually it dawned on me and I hunted with a different eye. My photo didn’t need to be symmetrical, it could be the subject instead. So here are my choices, enjoy.

  1. I’ve never seen such magnificent species of butterfly. WOW! They’re unbelievable. I don’t know if we have any that come close, but I don’t know much about butterflies either. I just like what I see. 😛

  2. They’re perfect, Gilly. Sometimes, I overthink the challenge and miss what’s right in front of me. Glad you found these for us to enjoy. Thanks for posting. Very nice entries for the challenge.
    Have a great weekend !!!😊
