Two V filter images and one color composite of the planet Mars. In the V images, the bright south polar region and hints of darker regions are visible. In the May 3rd image Mars appears bigger because at that time it was closer to Earth. Note the slight change in the phase of Mars between the images. The color of the composite pretty close to the color one sees through the telescope.
