Good use of camouflage in this murderous ambush!
With all the hot weather we’ve been experiencing in the U.K. lately, I have had to go out most nights with the hose to stop the Missus’ plants from perishing. I noticed Superhydrophobicity at work on the Bulrush leaves so I went out today to macro the effect. Wasn’t expecting my little mate to be there as well. I am always amazed at the length of the antennae on these little beauties.
Never had so many flowers on this Cactus at the same time before – so just in case it’s thinking of pegging out – here’s some piccies.
A freshly opened Poppy, and a very tiny solitary Bee that only seems to go on these flowers on a Copper coloured leaf tree. Those flowers are about 4mm across for scale.
The Missus brought this Romanesco Broccoli home for lunch – so of course it had to be macro’d before we eat it.
What a beautiful fractal structure!
Canon 5D MkII and 100mm Canon macro for a deep inside the Poppy shot:
Once again the missus’ superior eyesight found something interesting in the garden to macro.
This is apparently a Candy Striped spider, fairly common throughout England – but we’ve never seen one before.
Looks like a damn Aussie red back to me 🙂
Bee macro’d in the garden this morning 🙂
