    Hi Terry, I like the colors, contrast, and detail. It looks like some sort of a plant but beyond that I have no idea what it is!

    Hi Frank!

    I believe it is one of the ornamental grasses known as Fountain Grass. I think there are several different types of Fountain Grass but I don't know which one it is.

    It is rather fluffy normally, but was kind of matted after a pretty good rain.

    Very nice image. I was looking all over to see the raindrops.

    Also really like the framing - how did you do that?

    Great shot Terry, this is exactly the kind of image that I love macro for, it takes something that is somewhat overlooked everyday and turns it into the center point of attention. Well done

    Thank you everyone.

    Bobo, here is one of the discussions regarding framing from this forum. I seem to recall several on here and I just did a quick search for "framing" to get this one.

    Tobias, I totally agree. I have always had a thing for contemplating miniature landscapes and such. Guess I'm easily amused! But shooting macro is a nice reminder to myself not to overlook the beauty that is right in front of my face!
