The inside of a Cornflower. (Looking happer after the mega-rain we had last night).

There are always so many amazing things to see in the way of patterns and details, with macro. I know many other people have said this. I have always found Nature awesome...

Best to all,

Dave.

Taken with Canon 100mm EF macro, which is a very sharp lens.

Wonderful colour and detail, and yes you're right you pick up so much more with the macro shots.

Indeed the detail you have captured here is impressive, Dave, very fresh looking after the rain too.
How right you are with your opening remarks.......a really good macro shot shows details which I could never hope to see with the unaided eye.
Ronnie.

No chance, Sue; but it is you who should give lessons in Photoshop. I am in awe of your beautiful creations! Haven't a clue how they are done, but they are magnificent. 'Bambi and Brimstones' is a prize winner! Wink

Sorry it has taken so long - but I had to wait until today and this past week there have been some AMAZING images on site - I have chosen yours because to me it is absolutely fantastic photpgraphy - no messin', no textures, just brilliant photography of the type which I can only aspire to.
