Monday Macro

This shot was taken in my back yard as the snow was starting to melt. This drop was clinging to the end of a forscythia petal. In it, you can see the reflection of our willow tree, with snow on its branches.

Such a beautiful little moment in our enormous world.

So tiny and irrelevant in the larger picture of things. If I hadn't gone out into the yard at that moment, I wouldn't have seen that glistening bead. Nobody would have. Yet, this droplet of water and billions just like it, are the basic building blocks of life. Such an essential part of our very existence. It is such a miracle how such fantastic events like this droplet forming and reflecting, occur right under our noses, for the most part, unnoticed. The Great Creator of the universe, has drafted many a great work, for our enjoyment, should we take the time to notice it.

Thanks for joining us.

An example of a good eye for "seeing" a photo. Good job! I enjoy macro and closeup photography. You can show and/or isolate things that are usually not noticed.

That is amazing. I wish I had an eye for that, and could capture it as well as you. Thanks for reminding how beautiful the world is...right in our own back yards.

Come to think of it, I think you should do a photography/poetry book...I'd buy it.
