Macro: Mushroom

 

 

It’s time for another macro for Monday.  I went back in time for this one.  This is about 2 years old and was taken at my parents house.  They’d been having a rainy year, so there was all kinds of mushrooms all over their yard.  

Check out this brightly colored mushroom….

Macro Monday – Snow on the Fir

It’s time for Macro Monday!!  This week, I chose a picture from a couple weeks ago when we had so much snow.  We were supposed to have a “dusting” to an inch and ended up with 6″.  I don’t like winter or snow, but it sure does make for nice photography!!

Here’s my Macro Monday….

I recently took a trip to my parents house and they had every kind of mushroom imaginable growing in their yard.  They were quite interesting and kept me busy getting shots of ALL of them!!  This particular one was nibbled on my a deer overnight and the ants were starting to move in by the light of day.

Macro: Blossoming

studio waterstone

This shot for Macro Monday and I Heart Macro is a new addition to my front flowerbed this year.  I bought it in full bloom, then thought that it died because everything fell off including the leaves.  It must have just gone into shock because it’s come back in full force twice to these beautiful blossoming flowers.  Sometimes they’re all pink and sometimes they’re dual colors.  It’s proven to be an awesome addition to my flower garden!!

Macro Monday: Turtle Yawn

studio waterstone

This shot for Macro Monday and I Heart Macro is brand new!!   Hubby has a turtle that he rescued and this time of the year, he collects live food for the turtle to eat so that he stays up on his hunting skills.  I took this shot after the turtle had a nice full belly and was tired.  He let out a big yawn and stuck his tongue out at me!!

Foto Finish: Gardening

Foto Finish

Today is the day for Foto Finish!! Today’s optional theme is definitely one that I’m fond of.  It’s gardening!!  This is also the last one until July as Barbara is putting this meme on hiatus while she’s away and enjoying summer.

I chose some buds of the flowers that are taking over my flower bed right now.  These are my favorite ones because of the colors.  I have white, pink, magenta, yellow, and a purple.  However, this one is a peach color with a pale yellow center.  I just love them!!

Here’s my “gardening” Foto Finish…..

Macro Monday: Zinnia

studio waterstone

This shot for Macro Monday and I Heart Macro is a fairly new one.  I recently planted some Zinnias and they had beautiful flowers on them.  They sure did attract the butterflies and bees right away too!!  However, this photo doesn’t have any visitors in it….it’s just simply the flower center.

Macro Monday: Dandelion Seeds

studio waterstone

This shot for Macro Monday and I Heart Macro is a brand new one!!  I was out walking the yard trying to find things to get up close and personal with.  I ended up with some good photos.  I love playing!!  For this week’s Macro Monday and I Heart Macro, I ended up choosing one of a dandelion that’s gone to seed.  While I was trying to photograph it, some of the seeds blew away.  I didn’t capture them, but I did get the partial head of the dandelion!!

Here’s my Macro Monday and I Heart Macro…..

Macro Monday: Moth on Leaf at Night

I haven’t participated in Macro Monday in so long.  It really feels good to be posting my photos and being active in the meme’s again!!

For this Macro Monday, I chose a photo that I took last summer.  It’s a month on a leaf and I tried different distances and lights.  I ended up liking it the best with the dark background.  This was taken when the sun hadn’t quite set yet and the light highlighted the moth, but showed nothing behind it. 

I hope that you like this shot as much as I do!!  Click to enlarge….

Macro Monday: Flower Center

For my Macro Monday selection today, I picked something from my flower garden again.  This flower by itself is pretty, but the center is very interesting.  I find the different texture amazing!!  I think this picture captures it all pretty well and I was happy with the way it turned out.  I’m very much looking forward to getting more shots of this flower and hoping that more like it bloom!!

Here’s my big yellow flower center for Macro Monday (click to enlarge to see full details)…..

Foto Finish: My Garden

Foto Finish

Today’s Foto Finish is “my garden” for the theme.

There’s plenty of choices for this one, like the entire flower garden.  I don’t have a veggie garden!!  I only have the flower bed in front of my house and the flower garden next to my swing out back.  The one out back was started last fall and is almost in full bloom this spring.  I’ve had so many pretty flowers already.  I planted several kinds though so that I have some late in summer too.  I just hope they can hold up to the OK summer like they say they can!!

So many of my flowers are purple that are in bloom right now.  I’m sure this is a coincidence.  It has to be considering how many I planted!!  This delicate purple flower that I chose is from my flower bed in front of the house.  I just love this thing!!  It’s delicate and pretty….and a beautiful shade of purple.

Here’s my Foto Finish (click to enlarge)….

Foto Finish: Macro

Foto Finish

I was pretty excited when I read what the theme was for this week’s Foto Finish.  That theme is…..macro.  I just love macro photography.  I love seeing all the little things in the world come to life in front of my lens.  Sometimes I get a really good capture, and sometimes, a not so good one.  No matter what, I have fun with it!!

This week’s Foto Finish photo that I chose is one from last summer.  I followed this praying mantis all over the yard waiting to get the right shots of him.  He finally lit on one of the wild sunflowers in my back yard.  He blended in so well, he was almost hard to get.  If you notice in this shot, he’s pretty much looking right at me!!

Here’s my Foto Finish (click to enlarge)….
