Joining Lori Plyler, of Studio Waterstone, for "I Heart Macro" slash "I Heart Close Ups: Up Close Photography for Macro Makers and the Camerologically Challenged".
This weeks macro shots, featuring weeds from my yard.
Carolina Snailseed. The name refers to the seed, which supposedly resembles a snail shell. The birds really love these bright, red berries.
And the lovely Rag Weed. We try to eliminate these before they bloom, but missed this one.
I also wanted to share a picture of this little guy. It's one of the many Battle Beasts that my eldest son collected when he was a boy. About twenty years ago my son accidentally pulled one of the arms off and for the life of me, I could not get it to snap back into the darn, little hole. I sat it on a shelf to fix "later" and over the years would try again, to no avail. This morning I gave it a try and after wrestling with it for 15 minutes, the arm finally snapped into the hole! Proof that mom's can fix anything, even if it takes twenty years.
