I’m happy Becky’s back doing squares! I’ve missed that challenge. I have two photos as squares for todays’s walk but the other refused to go into a square without losing its fuzziness. Who was I to quibble?

Squares first.

There may not be actual kangaroos roaming the streets of Redondo Beach but evidently there were at some time because they left some of their paws behind. The tubular stalks resemble the kangaroo paws they’re named after, although in a very different color. Let’s look closer, using the approach Resa, the talented designer at Graffiti Lux Art & More takes when sharing street art: moving from near to far.

I didn’t touch to see whether or not they’re as fuzzy as they look. Living in Arizona has made me a little careful about that! Maybe next visit. 🙂

I’ve been a bit under the weather the last couple days, although as I put this post together on Sunday evening, I’m feeling much better. As I’ve had a fever, I did get a Covid test to be safe, but I have taste, smell, no breathing problems, and not coughing, so if it is Covid, it’s a very mild case. But over the weekend I napped a lot, so apologies for not making it to everyone’s blogs. I’d hoped to walk with Jo today, but instead I’m going with simple, finding beauty in something most visitors at the Preserve may overlook.

The generally preferred method of taking macro photos is with a macro lens, unless you’re carrying a camera with a telephoto lens for bird photos. In that case, the preferred method of taking macros is from about 6′. 🙂 That’s what happens at the Preserve unless I’m taking my photos with my phone. In this case, think telephoto at a distance. Welcome to Monday.

I’m not sure what these are, but there were lots of them in the meadows. Is it just me or is anyone else getting a Dr. Seuss Thing One and Thing Two vibe here? I do know it’s not Covid hair!

No, I’m not referring to my state of mind (although you may beg to differ) but to the sun highlighting some fuzzy beauties. My brother and I used to call plants like these “tippy toes.” Not sure why, but I still love the name.
