Macro Garden Series – 4

Nature creates some very weird things, and I love finding them ๐Ÿ™‚

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Shot at Wilson Botanic Park with my Olympus OMD EM5 with 60mm (120mm equivalent) macro lens.

Submitting to Jude’s Macro in the Garden challenge. 

Also in response to the Seven Days of Nature challenge where I was nominated by Robin at Reflections for my Soul and Pauline from Gypsy Life to share seven nature shots over seven days and nominate a new person each day. 

Today I nominate my dear friend Lucile from Bridging Lacunas. I’m sure you know her already but if not please go visit her. The link will take you to some wonderfully charismatic shots of a fisherman on a recent trip.

  6. Hakea devils (I think that’s what they are) are great, if recalcitrant, subjects. Depth of field usually defeats me. The hakeas around my Southern Hemisphere home were sacrificed in the interests of fire safety. I thought it was a sacrifice too many.

      Aha! Yes that’s what they are. Thank you!!! Definitely a sacrifice. ๐Ÿ˜˜

    Thanks Meg for identifying these. I had no idea what they were, but they make a great subject for macro photography.

      Oh Lucile hun, it’s ok. I should have said not to worry if you were too busy. I scheduled this before I knew how much you had on.
