Macro Madness

Enough about the damn dishwasher from H E double hockey sticks.

PIONEER WOMAN is having another photo contest, and this time the assignment is Macro shots. Here are a few I dug out of the archives. Feel free to shout out your favourites!

1. Dragonfly - (Why does this make me think of Robert DeNiro in Taxi Driver?)

2. Horsetail
3. Orchid
4. Milkweed
5. Love in a mist (I actually think I'm wrong about this being a skeletonized nigella leaf, but I like the title anyway so I'm leaving it as is. If you know what kind of leaf this is, let me know. Damn it Jim, I'm a photographer, not a botanist!)

6. Day Lily
7. Alium
8. Day Lily with Raindrop

9. Frost on the window

10. Day Lily Centre
11. Columbine
12. Hosta La Vista, Baby
13. Lilac
Lucky thirteen.

Have a great weekend!

So pretty, all of them! My niece did a few macro shots of my sister's garden and I want to paint them all, they're so stunning. Love, love, love your day lily with the raindrop.

Ah, thanks! I don't drag out my macro lens that often, but when I do, it reveals a whole new world.

I love macro shots. These are wonderful!
My personal favorite is the milkweed. They look like they should be a Muppet pair singing a song together.
Yeah, I know. I'm weird. :o)

I like the colour, composition and great DOF of the day-lily center; second place goes to dragon fly because he is purple. Moster

My two faves are the dragonfly (love the eyeballs) and the milkweed. Like the day lily too. (PS: we're almost great aunts again - yay!)

I got so excited when I saw that milkweed in the sun at the end of the driveway. But I'm weird like that.

I know Yutha, great-aunts! What a minute. I'm too young to be a great-aunt!

Dragonfly and Milkweed! Those two I like in particular. Beautiful work!
