Keeping with the same theme as I have done for past two days, i.e.: Macro and Moisture. I thought I would submit this image which depicts the centre of one of the many stems of my 'Poincettia', which sits quite happily on the kitchen window sill. I think it's the longest one that we have ever had, normally they seem to fade away about the same time as you finish off the last remnants of the Christmas Turkey. Any way I noticed several small dew like droplets inside each of the stems, and fresh buds that were beginning to emerge. So whilst comfortably in doors, out of the wind and rain, I placed the said plant on the kitchen table, grabbed my camera fitted with a Macro Lens configuration, mounted onto an ancient but still reliable tripod, attached a shutter release, and play quietly for an hour or so. I hope you Like.

P.S. I hope you find time to look at my images today, however as much as I would love to sit down and scroll through your many high quality images, I am off up to Kings Hospital in London for my six monthly check up and scan, following my second acquired brain injury in 2010. Have a great day everyone, and if I am able to have a view when I get back later today I will do so.

Regards Nathan

This macro is almost an abstract and that is nice!
