Who knew?

Indeed.

Who knew the centre of a pansy looks almost like it has fuzzy teeth or something ... my new camera sees so much more than my own eyes do, that's for sure!

A pretty pansy in my pot.














But, on closer inspection... furry fingers ... probably to aid in pollination or protection or something...














Look...I can see right down the throat....














Wild flax is beautiful too..














and, up close... stamens that look like they've been dipped in sugar... click on any pic to make it even BIGGER....



















Awww... and, look at this poor guy ... not visible to the naked eye just admiring the little stems of drooping hearts...but, something definitely happened here....

A lesson to be learned here - it pays to stop and look more closely at things, particularly those found in nature.

ohhh lovely micro shots. It's amazing isn't it, the power of that lense.. I love having such a in depth look. it is probably about time for me to upgrade but that means I will have to learn how to use a new camera.. I haven't even learned how many things my old camera can do. I'm sure If I took the time to read more in that little book that came with it... but that would probably never happen here.

Gorgeous photos. Reninds me of when I was teaching 7 year olds. We had a digital microscope and took amazing macro pics of flowers, tadpoles etc!! x Jo
