Macro Indulgence

A little more fun with my camera.

I usually avoid carnations, but the colour of these drew me to buy them. I was helpless in their spell. They are so soft and meringue-like, I just want to dive right in.

It could be said that a close up shot of pussy willows that shows the dust particles is possibly too close up.

Simply beautiful perspective. Wonderful shots, both of them.

And in my book, there's no such thing as ``too close''!

Gorgeous macro pics! Those little pussy willow blossoms ARE like little feather dusters! ha!

Exquisite. Carnations are my birth flower and I have to say that I have always been a bit *put out* by that. But seeing this beautiful pink crinoline of petals... I will now be kinder to them. :)

You can almost hear the meow from those pussy willows! Well done!
