Très joli et original. Les macros montrent des choses que l'on ne voit pas à  l'œil nu.
Ray: Les macros révèlent The World of Small, qui est un monde vraiment différent, Martine.
I've noticed that - and this photo illustrates it beautifully!
Ray: Yes...I think you and I could be Foundation members of Grass Lovers Society, Elizabeth. smile
Well done, Sir Ray.
Ray: It is lovely stuff, isn't it, Ginnie.

Who’d have thought that boring old grass could look like this Ray.
Ray: Ha Ha

Not so boring after all, Chad.
Jolie capture ....bravo !!
Bonne journée
Ray: Merci Claudine.
Looking up looking down and looking closely ....all can be very rewarding
Ray: This is so, Yoda!

I go around with my eyes shut, I’m sure.Mind you, if I peered into the grass as I cycle, it would all end in tears. Well seen, O Macro Master.
Ray: Riding with eyes shut can also be a short-cut to a tearful end, Alan.

[Speaking of which...I believe I fell asleep for 100 metres or so on my long ride this morning... sad ]
Each flowers so differently and some become a different colour during that process.
Ray: Exactly right, Mary, and you are describing some of the reasons grass is so attractive to me.
A nice abstract, Ray.
Ray: Thank you, Frank.

I didn't intend it as an abstract, but more as a super-real view of the little things that the eye does not see without assistance. However, if you see abstract then I am happy with that outcome, too. smile
Barely noticeable I presume with the eye.
Ray: My eyes can barely detect that there is colour other than green on the grass stem, Brian...but getting close in with the camera reveals there is much going on!

Great shot. Grass is not always just for parties, I believe.
Ray: Cow party on it constantly, Louis! smile
love the little flowers...
Ray: Quite lovely, eh!
How unusual!
Ray: The surprising thing, Tom, is that it is not unusual at all! smile
