Everyday Marvels




I spotted this colourful little fellow on a passionfruit late yesterday.




Our largest passionfruit really are larger than a tennis ball.







Covered in pollen, yesterday's caterpillar was enjoying nibbling on some passionfruit leaves today. 




Four new bromeliad flower spikes are beginning their adventure.




The largest tadpoles are beginning to turn into tiny frogs.




Loving my new macro lens! The closer I look, the more miraculous I find the everyday happenings in our garden. My eyes only see a tiny sliver of all which is continually unfolding, I marvel at God's creativity.

Diese Raupe gibt es auch bei uns, ist ein Schlehenbürstenspanner. Deine Makros sind fantastisch.

you are the queen of macro!
I wonder what your frog will look like mature....
your caterpillar looks like a hairy strand of cooked tomato! Love the flowers too and how much your passion fruit have grown. May our passion for the Lord continue to increase as well

From the first shot I was thinking I would ask if you've been using your new lens in these shots , which of course was answered by the end of your post. That is lovely you're getting so much enjoyment from it - as are we the viewers. Can't believe the size of those passionfruit!!

Gillian Olson said...

You are capturing some wonderful things with that new lens, I am so glad that you are sharing with us!

Liz said...

Such a beautiful "treasure" to discover on your passionfruit vine. I am enjoying the fruits of your new lens :)

Marie said...

Really really beautiful photos! I hope the caterpillar isn't going to lay your passionfruit foliage bare! He's a pretty caterpillar and I bet will become a gorgeous butterfly as well.

Kaipiroska said...
