Macro Monday | Week 17

Sprinkler droplets on a gerbera daisy.

Macro Monday 17



  1. Oh Patty – I find myself so looking forward to your Macro Monday posts. This one is spectacular – I think I say that every week but I just love the colour and the framing/composition of the gerberโ€ฆI am sure that if I stare hard enough I can see you reflected in those diamond like droplets of waterโ€ฆ.

    • Thank you, Selma! I am having a lot of fun with this macro project. My bf gifted me this amazing lens last year, but I never found myself using it much. I figured that committing myself to a weekly project would do the trick, and it surely did! It makes me happy that you’re enjoying my photos. *hugs*

    • Patty, I came back to make sure my follow remained so that you are in my reader. I don’t know why but sometimes my follows get unfollowed. You are in my reader and I really look forward to your work. You are really good!!! xx Amy

      • That seems to happen a lot to everyone, Amy! I get paranoid and have to double check, too. Sometimes I’m still following, but the posts don’t show up in my reader. So weird!

      • Patty, you too? Oh me too! I seem to have to chase blogs to make sure I am still clicked to follow. WP strikes again. Or something. But anyway, I am so glad I am still following you and you hopefully will be in my reader. Crossing fingers. xx

      • Silly WP! You’d think they’d fix this by now! But yes, I’m very glad we’re following each other! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. hah that is truly stunning and i laughed when someone said if they stared they were sure they could seeyou in the droplets, i had to have a look too!

    • Thanks, Stacey. Sometimes it’s hard to get interesting shots. Everything has been captured 100x over and a girl runs out of creative juices when she’s tired from teaching! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    What a stunning shot, Patty! Little gem-drops like a shiny crown around the gerbera…

    • Thanks, Bonnie! I nearly took out my shoulder trying to get this shot. I forgot there was a square lamp post right above me and rammed myself right into it! I was bruised for a week!

  4. Well, I enlarged it to look for your reflection in the droplets, but couldn’t make you out. ๐Ÿ™‚ Stunning, Patty. You see beauty in things we normally just walk past. Love it.
