"It's a new dawn.....it's a new day.....it's a new life for me......and I'm feeling good!" :o)

1. I was taking some more close-up shots and one subject that inspired me was a potted fern that I have at home that is just beginning to sprout some new leaves. I love 'emerging' nature and so I spent a lot of time focused on many of the new leaves. When I got to post-processing I fell in love with this particular shot because the curve of the new leaf looks like a person's head resting on their arm....as if they are about to awake to a new life......and the words from the famous song came to mind!

2. Adiantum Leaf dew drop.
Nature will bear the closest inspection. She invites us to lay our eye level with her smallest leaf, and take an insect view of its plain."
Henry David Thoreau

When I downloaded my shots I fell in love with this particular one straight away. I often ask my 7 year old daughter her opinion on my shots because she has a very strong artistic flair.....her take on this one was that it looks like the leaf was blowing bubbles! Very cute!

3.4.5 Ladybird.
I am fascinated with the wonders of nature! I am always impressed by the beauty of the smallest things around us, I love to watch tiny insects in their natural habitat and capture their amazing lives.
For this shot I wanted to combine my passion for macro photography (and lensbaby of course). I have to say that I took probably more than 100 shots and there were many that would have been wonderful if the ladybird hadn't moved at the last minute! LOL!

The combination of lensbaby + macro = headache!.....but lensbaby + macro + live insect = migrane!!!!!!! LOL!

Thank you very much for viewing my work.

Kind regards,
