Yeah, this is what I do…or what I really like to do. Get up close and personal. See small things that others might miss. Look more and more closely. So you can imagine that choosing photos for this wasn’t at all easy although it was fun. After I hit five, I stopped. But I hope you enjoy the five I chose and thanks to Anne for hostessing this week.

    I like these, Janet!

  2. scr4pl80 says:

    Magnificent! You inspire me. Now if I could just make Benny (the dog) hold still while I bend down to get closer to the things I see! LOL

  3. Tina Schell says:

    Wow Janet, your opener is dazzling and your leaves are truly wonderful. I love the way you’ve captured the light and the nature of the subjects. Beautifully done.

    Absolutely beautiful!

  5. A unique perspective, Janet! Beautifully done! 🌞

  6. Anne Sandler says:

    Janet, thanks for participating in this challenge! Your macros are wonderful. I especially like the icy leaf. You handle light beautifully!

  7. restlessjo says:

    I especially like 3 and 4. The light through that leaf is lovely 🙂 🙂

  8. Su Leslie says:

    They are beautiful Janet; and I totally believe how difficult it must have been to make a selection!

  9. Your first and last photos are my favorites — I love water droplets and snow, but hardly get out with my camera for either. But I also love the critter shots as well. I guess it means that I like them all!

    • I’ll take that. 🙂 Now that I’m in Arizona, water droplets are rare and in the Phoenix area, snow non-existent. I have to do some archive diving to enjoy them now. Have to admit that I love drop shots and snow, too.


  10. Dan Antion says:

    These are excellent, Janet.

  11. Teresa says:

    Beautiful, especially the leaf images.

  12. Amy says:

    Amazing macro captures, Janet. I love the leaf especially!!

  13. Stunning choices, but I must admit I love the first and last. Your skills are showing. 🙂

  14. JohnRH says:

    Beautiful!! Well done.

  15. peggyjoan42 says:

    Wonderful photos. Like the last one with the frost on the leaf. Great shots of things we all miss as we venture around this world.

  16. The Eclectic Contrarian says:

    Little worlds around us that we’re never aware of! Good thing for people like you that can see them!

  17. I love the first one with the drops and web strand the most, and the leaves!

    I don’t use my macro lens enough. Mostly I bring it out in the Spring for flowers. I should carry it around more your images are inspiring.

  18. VO says:

    How delicate is that first photo….

  19. Every one a gem, I liked the first one the best.
    I would have cropped it till only the three dew drops and the necklace Webb coming up from the right hand corner were visible but perhaps that would have made it too abstract.😎

  20. Beautiful pictures 😊

  21. Excellent series of small thing, Janet.
    The leaf with the frost is outstanding.
    Nicely done for the challenge.
    Be Safe 😷
    Izzy 😎

  22. Resa says:

    Lovely shots, Janet.
    At first I thought the opening pic was some sort of tech lamp… you know instead of a gooseneck, a bent neck with special led bulbs.
    It’s your fault You whet my imagination.

    Wow, Janet! Love that hummingbird moth!
