Macro Monday: Fuzzy Weed

Posted by on 23 August 2010

I don’t know why, but the weed that I picked for today’s Macro Monday is one of my favorites to shoot.  It’s just a WEED!!  I love the texture of it though.  It’s not really a “burr” type weed, although it looks like it is.  I’ve touched it many times though and it doesn’t have prickers as it may seem.

I also love taking photos of it from different angles.  Even more, taking photos from the exact same angle but focusing on different areas of the fuzzy weed.  I love the contrast I can get between the sharp focus areas and the blurred out-of-focus areas.  I think it’s a fun effect with this weed.

So that’s my fuzzy weed for this week’s Macro Monday.  For more Macro Monday photos, click the meme button at the top of this post and visit many other great macros and blogs!!

    many weeds look so nice that I wonder – should they really be called weeds…? Great photo and thanks for commenting on mine

    Yesterday as I was gardening I thought about weeds – I ‘ve decided to call them all ‘wild flowers’ in future 😉

    I like it too Elaine – it looks a bit like a cleaver but I think they stick to your clothes if you rub against them.

    Great photo. The burrs on the seeds look like they would catch in your socks.

    Truly great shots! That blurred effect is called “Bokeh” pronounced bo-ka. =) I learned that in my photography classes.
