I love macro photography, so choosing images for this challenge really was challenging.Β  In the end I decided to go with a few shots I took while out walking in the last couple of days.

It is winter here, and we seem to be in a pattern of dull wet days interspersed with cold, clear ones. I definitely prefer walking in the latter, and have captured a few shots of morning dew clinging to flowers, leaves and lichens.

    • Thanks Joanne. They are lovely little flowers, and seem to have lasted longer than usual this year. Our jade trees were bought about 14 years ago at an a local fair. We’ve grown so many more from cuttings; at one stage they were our standard gift to people. πŸ™‚
