    • I thought it was too. For some reason, the tips caught the light and made a special display as though Nature was saying, “Psst… hey, look at this!”

  2. It’s amazing what you can see in these macro shots that we don’t take the time to notice when we look at them with just our eyes.

    • It is! I love taking photos like this one and then seeing them on the computer screen. Nature’s designs are usually very beautiful.

      • One of the most amazing mini-worlds is of moss. But anything done in macro shows things we don’t even realize are there. The bits of red that show in the “no longer fuzzy” photo were a surprise to me too.

        • Yes, moss has a whole world of its own, often shared with tiny lichens. I really love close-up photography!

  3. Nice lighting. I don’t remember pussy willows looking this way back when I lived in the midwest.

  6. Despite a lifetime of loving pussy willows, I’ve never seen one this way. It’s such a fine photo. I’m amazed again and again at the surprising realities macro photography can reveal, and this one really surprised me.

    • I also missed this stage of the willow’s flowers for many years and I don’t understand why. Perhaps at about the time the catkins are in their initial furry stage other flowers begin to blossom and attention turns to them instead of following the development of the willow flowers.

  7. What a stunning shot. I just love it when a beam of light hits a plant like that. Of course, it’s always more amazing seeing it on a large screen when you can really appreciate those tiny details.

    • It seems that sometimes Nature prompts me to take a picture and all I have to do is release the shutter.
