Erika Nadon captured the February Photo of the Month for the Ladysmith Camera Club.

The Translucent Fly was captured (digitally) at Beacon Hill Park in Victoria, where Nadon spotted a May fly and was fascinated with the way its translucent wings reflected the colour of the surrounding flowers.

The next meeting of the Ladysmith Camera Club takes place Tuesday, May 24, 7 p.m. at Hardwick Hall, Third Avenue and High Street.

Acclaimed Nanaimo photographer Brad Powell will talk about The Art of Composition in Landscape Photography.
