Grevillea Whispers
















A new world of wonder opens up with my super macro conversion lens, I love it! Most these views are from this grevillea flower below. (If you look carefully you will notice the caterpillar in the photo directly above and also below)




Quite a deal of excitement mid-afternoon when this parcel arrived! Our first iPad lies safely inside, the new third generation iPad. I believe there are wonderful things to explore on it with photos too. I guess I'll have to take a number with all 10 of us wanting to have a turn on it over the next few days. My husband will enjoy opening it tonight at his leisure, no doubt surrounded by many very eager onlookers!

Genie said...

I am awed and appalled at the quality and the detail of the maco photos you were able to get with the new lens. It is wonderful. I went over and read all about it in your other post. Now I am itching for one...not good, I know. But, then, I am still on my iPad 1 and my iPhone 3G without Siri. genie

Marie said...

Pure art! The dewdrop on the first photo has the most perfect reflection of the flower inside it. Such amazing artistry!

Madge Bloom said...

Love those.. especially the little world in a drop of water... Please forgive me my tardiness in visiting your entry in ‘Weekly Top Shot,’ I have been rather under the weather the past few days, although still working. I'm so glad you decided to join us and share at 'Weekly Top Shot.' :-) I hope you'll come share again next week...

Liz said...

I would love an iPad in our house... it's on my LONG term wish list. One day...
