Bur Ice/ Macro Monday

Closeup of frost on bur

Mother Nature is still making ice sculptures here in Ontario. Is it my imagination, or do I see a tiny crystal jet about to take off? Take a closer look here...

Macro of ice on bur

Do you see it perched on the ice near the top middle of the photo?

I did see the jet. Do you think it's for faeries, and such?

Kathy said...

Oh, your imagination is very vivid today!

Just out of curiosity, would you mind sharing what kind of lens you use for your macros? I have been calling closely cropped close-ups macros but as a mentee in a photography mentoring program I've become involved in, I'm told that it's not so! Boo-hoo. Now I guess I need to invest in a good macro lens!

That is so cool! I don't think I have ever looked at a burr that close up before! The little hooks are amazing! And the jet, too!!

I see it too...That definitely looks like a jet. Maybe that means winter is taking off and spring will be landing soon.
