You are almost as the cellular level... cool!
Ray: You have to get in really close to see what exquisite gems these tiny blooms are, Larry.

Fabulous, just fabulous and a delight to see. I so love the small world. Yesterday's spider is a real beauty...
Ray: Thank you, Astrid. I could get lost in the World of Small.
Oh these are all so gorgeous!!!
Ray: There is so much loveliness in a weed patch, Elizabeth.
"Gobsmacked" is indeed a good word for these wonders, Ray.
Ray: I certainly feel that way when I am photographing these miniature delights, Ginnie.

One can only stand in awe of these nature delights..
Ray: Sometimes that is exactly what I do, Chris.

excellent images - garden wonders indeed!
Ray: As you might imagine, Philine, I am perfectly happy to have some weeds in our garden,.

So easily missed, Ray, without your eye
Ray: Most people would ever have noticed these little gems, Lisl.
Je comprends qu'on puisse etre touchée par ces toutes belles ..a part la denière de belles inconnues pour moi
Merci
Ray: Ils sont au moins égaux aux fleurs que nous plantons, Claudine.

They are so beautiful.
Ray: Yes...stunners...Alan.
They are lovely. I guess many of our garden flowers are cultivated descendants of flowers like these
Ray: I suppose you are right about this, Bill.

I never understood the aggression felt towards so called weeds. I always found them to be stunning delicate blooms Ray.
Ray: I think you and I fell the same way on this subject, Chad.

The top flower has beautiful sex organs.
Ray: This one, along with the passionflower, is probably my favourite bloom, Louis...such a pity it is less than 5mm diameter, as few people ever notice it..
Your garden appears to be a wealth of beautiful plants and flowers Ray.
Ray: There is a lot of grass, weeds, fruit trees and vegetable gardens, Brian, but I can always find flowers and their attendant insects.
Weeds are indeed wonderful. Why call them weeds, ah?
Ray: In my garden, Mary, "weeds" mean "plants that were not intentional planted there by me"...and, I am delighted that these living things don't seem to give a hoot about my claim of ownership of the land. smile
Little beauties, aren't they?
Ray: They are gorgeous, Tom, and I could probably find enough pictures of such things to fill a coffeetable book.
