Everything made by human hands looks terrible under magnification–crude, rough, and asymmetrical. But in nature every bit of life is lovely. And the more magnification we use, the more details are brought out, perfectly formed, like endless sets of boxes within boxes.”
― Roman Vishniac

Details are one of the things that make macro photography so fascinating. Sometimes, to paraphrase Joni Mitchell, you don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s done. Sometimes the details are even more beautiful than the whole.

Look for more details here.

    Janet – this is one of the prettiest photos I have seen in a while – it gather me from the reader and then seeing the larger pic was so nice too – I think it is the yellow and white – and all the detail!

    I agree with the quote – Mother Nature never disappoints 😄 Lovely shot, Janet!

    • I’m happy you like it, Connie. I’ve seen so many lovely things on this trip. Heading back home tomorrow. Monday I’ll be walking in my park again, prairie rather than forest.

    Nice edit, Janet. The subtle high-key tone is perfect for the subject.

    The papery leaves are a perfect backdrop for the intricate centre details.
