With an open topic for this week’s Macro Moments Challenge, I’ve chosen this image of a dragonfly feasting on a stem of tiger grass by our pond. Note the delicacy of the lace structure of the wings; there’s also some wear and tear on a couple of the blue plates that cover the abdomen.
Nikon D800, 70-200mm f2.8 lens at 200mm. 1/250 at f8, ISO400. Cropped and adjusted in Lightroom.

The latest instalment in this thread calls for examples of analogous colours – in other words, ones that are adjacent on the colour wheel:
The most common mnemonic to help with remembering the ‘proper’ sequence of colours in the spectrum is ‘ROYGBIV’: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. Here are some images that put together good neighbours.
Two examples here: a flower from Monet’s Garden in Giverny and a selection of flowering courgettes from the Rialto Market in Venice

Finally, this is an electronic display in The Mall of The Emirates in Dubai. The colours actually cycle through the whole spectrum
