Let me take you on a tour through the forest, one of my favorite activities. Sometimes the trail going through is pretty narrow.

And sometimes it is quite wide.

Pine trees have so many thick branches that it can be hard to see the blue sky through them.

Pine tree sap is see through, although it tends to reflect a lot of its surroundings too.

Sometimes when you hike in a park, a river runs through it.

All the way through.

Forests are full of plants and animals, including insects. Insect wings are usually see through, including the wings of this blue dragonfly.

    • The hardest part is finding a dragonfly that actually sits still somewhere. Most of them fly around and never stop. Once they stop, they get a bit nervous when you try to approach them so they may fly away but I’ve noticed they often come back to the same spot a few minutes later. So, yes, it takes a lot of luck and a lot of patience. Bees are a lot easier to photograph because they collect nectar in the same area for a while.
