Macro Friday






I haven't gotten to take as many pictures this week as I would have liked. The weather has been simply wonderful, but there have been too many must-do projects to get outside. Here is my entry for Macro Friday:


I've never seen so many beautiful oak leaves before! Some are still green, some are all red, some are red with green. I think the multi-colored ones are my favorites. The little leaf above was only three and a half inches long. I brought it inside for my daughter. Yes, I really did measure it.

More oak leaves:


Here's a little Tufted Titmouse. I had hoped to get a little color, but the light was all wrong. I take my opportunities to get outside and take photographs, when they present themselves, even if it's not the best time of day for such things.

  3. Very nice and Christmas-y looking leaf! The colors really pop in that one! I didn't make it for Macro Friday today... trying to get the house in decent order while the kids are playing outside!

  7. Those colours really do pop. I took photos of waxwings this week - my first ever sighting and despite them being sillhouetted they are still pictures I will treasure. We don't get little titmouses here - they have little tuffs on their head just like a waxwing. Thankyou for your lovely comments on my fungi picture - I've just posted my first attempt at lens art today.

    Have a lovely weekend :)

  8. Those are great shots! I agree with others that the first leaf reminds me of Christmas!
