The Fly

Every now and again the mister and I enjoy a good cheesy sci-fi movie.   The 1958 Original Version The Fly certainly falls in that category.   I can’t help but remember that high-pitched squeal Help Me! Help MEEEEE!

Perhaps a little less scary, but equally intriguing – this macro shot I took of a fly on my Asian Pear tree.

lovely little drops

I headed out early this morning with the macro lens looking for inspiration.  The dogwood trees are just beginning to bloom, in my Virginia Garden.

Light misting and dew formed lovely little drops on the tips of the buds.  I captured the dogwood blooms and trees in the background in these drops.

not just a weed

Thistle

Macro shot of raindrops on thistle leaves. A magical look into the world of details. I took this photo on March 3,2012 in my Virginia Garden.

You might think of thistles as thorny weeds, but many varieties have lovely flowers and some, like the artichoke, are edible. The milk thistle produces seeds from it flowers that have medicinal properties. Many thistle species belong to the large plant family Asteraceae, which includes not only asters but also sunflowers and other cultivated flowers. Courtesy ehow
