Macro Monday: Breathtaking Beauty

It’s does not seem quite fair somehow that after six dull colourless months in black and white, Nature just explodes like fireworks all over the place. How is one gal and her little camera going to keep up with it all? (All the photos in this post are from today.)

  4. Something from the Bible comes to mind: Not even King Solomon in all his glory dressed like one of these... Oh yes, I know that this referred to the lilies on the fields, but the flowers on your pictures are all gloriously beautiful.

    1. Or is it splendour instead of glory? Well, you know what I mean, don't you!

    2. I know what you mean! I also suspect Jesus might just as well have said the same thing about any beautiful flower that happened to be around when he needed an illustration... :)

    1. Oh yes Virginia, I am delighted. It's just that some flowers seem to hardly have time to say hello before they drop their petals again... Hard job to keep up and catch them before they go! :)
