a wee bit different.

‘Twas ever thus—so, a bit more to the point:

and be warned you wouldn’t want to be frondled by those (better to leaf them alone, then) fearsome spikes. They are quite inflexible and oodles sharp.

Rather than drip about it, let’s settle for some wee hills of water (I used to admire the ‘Clumsy Carp’ character in the “BC” cartoon strips series. Clumsy, yes, a maladroit par excellence, yes … but the only guy in literature able to mould and carry genuine water balls. I think he’d look approvingly on these efforts (provided he didn’t trip and fall into them on approach)—

AND while we’re on colour, try this on for size. Shot with my elderly Olympus on Safari in deepest Gore last year, you may have seen it before but what the heck: I’m trying to meet a Challenge here.

The close-up itself is my whole try—you’re getting those lovely colours as a freebie bonus; boom boom!

  1. Lovely close-ups, Argie. Bumbles are mighty hard to capture, all my past attempts have been thwarted by their celerity. However, I didn’t have my swanky cameras back then. Still, I’m ever a fan of macro shots, and I admire your patience. Your sunflower pic really is like a sun, it’s fabulous!

    1. Yay, thank you.

      I’m thinking of changing my blog ‘theme’ for something that shows the snaps full size straight off, without having to click on them first.

      Today we went in to town (great coffee~!) where I took a few close ups that might just get me fired from the Weekly Challenge … and a few cloudy sky shots that are nothing if not atmospheric (ouch) 🙂

    1. Spouse and I adore them—for some reason they seem to like landing on me and wandering about, and never seem to mind if I put them back into a flower. Just gorgeous~! 🙂
