Day 49 - Small things in the yard

Karin's suggested Project 365 topic for this week is tiny, meaning use your macro setting. I wandered around the yard today and found these. The dogwood buds will bring us pink flowers in April, the brown weeping maple leaf will be replaced by new reddish leaves, the acorn will be food for the squirrel and the onion is the first (of many!) weed to be pulled from the flower bed.

These are great! I think looking for tiny things helps us notice things we might otherwise have missed :)

Ohhh... I miss dogwood trees.

I like all the different items in different lights.

When I decided to do these subjects, the sun was shining. When I got outside, it was cloudy. The dogwood wood and onion were taken without sun, as were some other unused shots. While working on the post, the sun reappeared, so I redid the acorn and maple leaf photos.

Nice! I especially love the acorn one.

thanks for coming over from Dawn's blog. I love your pictures. Your daughter's a vascular surgeon, you say? Wow. I've heard people say you either love vascular surgery or you hate it. I don't love it. ;-) But I admire her skill and dedication.

Tomorrow I have an endovenous laser ablation followed by making a fistula for someone with hemophilia. Oh boy!

Lew, these are lovely shots! You say you used the macro setting? I'm going to havee to try my macro setting and see what happens... :)
