  1. Once again, inspired…. speechless…. excited at the possibilities…..and impressed with your exquisite photography! You are my hero when it comes to photography.

  2. Yes, Sheila, you have done it again…absolutely beautiful. The water droplets are so clear. But my favorite picture is the needles up close. I like Macro Monday!

    1. Gunilla, I love the pine needles also. I never knew there were “male” pine cones. I learn something with every post. Thanks for stopping by and please come again.

  3. These are wonderful. I couldn’t bring up the photos where I was parked (very frustrating!), and I’m now in a better Internet area, so… now I can see them. I especially like the pine needles. 🙂

  4. Love your macro shots. I used to take underwater macro photos and always loved how sharp they turned out. My camera doesn’t do well with them, but now you’ve inspired me to check into purchasing a new macro lens!

    1. Wow, underwater macros! I bet they were stunning! I enjoy taking macros, so happy that I have inspired you to get a new macro lens! I will be looking forward to seeing your photos!
