Delicate Macro Monday


I knew when I saw the fuzzy buds on this bush that it would look lovely with snow.
When the storm hit full force the other day, I walked out back with my camera to try and catch some delicate snowflakes.  
I have been so jealous of people's perfect flakes and had to try.
I was happy to get a few very distinct flakes!

Happy Monday; to those of you in the deep freeze, stay warm.  
To those of you in warm climates -send sun!

M.E.

Great shot...I also been wanting to capture a snow flake on camera. Guess I have to get out there right after it snows.

Lovely macro! I've been wanting to try my hand at some macros like this. Yesterday morning and this morning, we had frozen fog, and it took everything I had not to turn around (I was on my way to work) and go home to spend time with the camera. hehe
