Illusion

I accidentally found that my magic wand had fooled me. It reserved half of its power.

I was by then taking pictures of a caterpillar. Trial makes perfect; back and front light, and whatsoever techniques I have read, I put into practice. 



My magic wand started functioning when a band of rainbow appeared on the camera screen.

It changed the transparency of the caterpillar, like how I alter the transparency of a solid fill in Microsoft Office.

That was interesting, I waited more. I could be Merlin or David Copperfield in the next second. 




But it stopped, absurdly.

The caterpillar stayed half-disappeared. My left half was Rainfield, another half  David Copperfield.

...said Alice to the Hookah-Smoking Caterpillar...

I believe this might be Absolom, Alice's friend caterpillar in Wonderland. He has been known to do some peculiar things. He must have known that your camera has magical powers.

You do seem to coax magical images from your camera lens.

I suppose those are lens flares thatve turned into magical rainbow in your shot.
I love the sight of caterpillars and envy you for finding one.

What in interesting caterpillar you chose on which to work your magic. Looks like a wad of thread. They'll get you for revealing how those tricks are done. hahahaha

Oddaj swoją czarodziejską różdżkę do naprawy :)
Give your magic wand to repair :)

You have become a great magician. One day you will turn the caterpillar into a butterfly.
