Dreamy

The theme this week over at Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday party is "dreams"...... Make sure you click here to see all the amazing photos that people submit!
"I dreamed I saw a universe contained in a drop of water....."
{2 layers of Kim Klassen's "dream": color burn @45% and overlay @38%}
Talk about dreaming... I have been neglecting most things I need to focus on this week in favor of exploring with my new macro lens.  I have been dreaming of a whole new world of images, patterns and textures......

{mushroom:  KK "silence" luminosity @15% and "serendipity" color burn @25%}

{yellow rose:  KK "serendipity" soft light @40%}

{Aster bud: KK "dream" soft light @100%, texture brushed off the center of the flower}

I love finding wildlife in my pictures (although it really highlights the fact that you need a tripod to take macro shots!):
The yin and yang of bees......

Oh, so many lovely photos! Probably the yellow rose is my fave, I love roses. Well done with your macro lens (I'd love one so much!). What a fab concept: a universe contained in a drop of water... awww! :)
Have a happy day!

These are gorgeous! I need to get a macro lens, these have me drooling. I especially love the ying and yang of bees, but they are all amazing.

What fun! I think the wasp on the rose is my favorite. Thanks for your comment about the fly. I saw it as a little dose of reality.
