blue acid caterpillar

It hadn't occurred to me that I should provide some sort of explanation with my Wordless Wednesday post. Of course, it's not so "wordless" then. This was one of those fireworks that is a compact "tube" about 3-4" long. You light one end and they spin like crazy (even to the point of bouncing; thus the caterpillar look), and they make a buzzing noise. I shot these with my camera on the tripod with the fireworks setting.

In Photoshop Elements, I discovered awhile back (quite by accident) that when you press Control-I, it inverts the colors. That's how I achieved the blue acid caterpillar on a white background. Hopefully that makes more sense.
