Close Up Friday
playing learning to use my new Macro lens so there's no "theme" to today's images except - NEW MACRO LENS WOO HOO!
Veronica prostrata (Speedwell Aztec Gold) close
Veronica prostrata (Speedwell Aztec Gold) closer
Unknown eggs on Panicum virgatum Cloud Nine
Possibly these are eggs of a predatory insect in the genus Podisus
(based on one comment on Bug Guide. net)
Flower of Ninebark (Physocarpus opulifolius 'Diablo')
Even closer. I love the way the pinkish/redish anthers look 3-D
Lastly, a little jumping spider that was crawling on my desk this week
Yes, that's a pad of drawing paper. A little thicker than average printer or notebook paper but not much. Did I say little? I meant TINY. Jumping spiders are soooo cute. Too bad I couldn't get closer.
