Hellboy Pareidolia

Pareidolia is the perceptual tendency to impose a meaningful interpretation on a vague, usually visual stimulus, so that a person sees an object, pattern, or meaning where it doesn't really exist. (Source: Wikipedia).

More than 100 photos of red dragonfly "Hellboy" pareidolia faces. I took them in Galesong village, Gowa regency, South Sulawesi, Indonesia, in 2012. I will release the pictures as NFT, only about 25 frames.

Another dragonfly met me in my room in Bandung exactly 1 year after "Hellboy Dragonfly" appeared, but this time with a sweet smile on his yellow face. Just took less than 5 frames with a smile, many without a face. This yellow dragonfly is very shy, hiding behind barbed wire.

The first pareidolia photo I took, was "Petruk's Face" in Bayunggede Kintamani, Bali 2011. Only 2 frames, because the "Petruk's face" is from an old man with the right attitude when burning his cigarette, like "Petruk"'s face.
