Today's Quick Post: Get Closer!
My main picture today is one of those cool lessons you discover about macro photography. This dead fern frond is something most wouldn't notice. Why? It's dead. Furthermore, the color conditions us to ignore it because we've learned that brown plants = dead = boring. But if you get close to a dead plant, you'll often be greeted by a surprise like this one: new and interesting detail that you've never noticed before!

Macro photography has taught me that even the most supposedly boring subjects can actually be extremely interesting and memorable! I now make sure to study all parts of a plant--both live and dead--because you never know what fantastic surprises lay in wait! :)

Today's Pictures
I'm featuring the other fern pictures I processed from my walk around the edge of Eel Lake at William Tugman State Park. I've also included a wonderful dead leaf with dramatic coloring and an interesting shape which I couldn't resist. :)

I hope you are all doing great and have a lovely weekend in store!

Explored on 2/20/21; highest placement #2.

I have to admit I spent a moment or two with my head tilted to one side trying to read the "writing" in the man image :-)) Such an wonderful macro image!

The rest of the macro shot are absolutely top-notch as well Janet........I love them all. The final PiP is wonderful............the leaf looks like some sort of fantastical tropical fish..!!

Such magical macro work!

What an incredible photo of the dead ferns. I really love it. I've never seen one like this before - at first I thought it was writing in gold leaf that were being shown. They do actually look like characters don't they? Wonderful pictures - I'm really enjoying your macro pictures.
