Nature : Lacy Architecture Of A Leaf

The lacy architecture of a leaf  seen through a close up lens. The thick, tough veins of a leaf give the leaf its shape and remain after the rest has decomposed and the toughest part are reinforced with a material called cellulose.

Asian Honey Bee - Close Up Photography

It has been a while since I last posted here.  Been busy of late , but since my bittergourd flowers are a plenty this season and the bees are coming back to help pollinate the female flowers , I took the opportunity to take out my camera and started shooting away. Not many of the shots turned out good but I managed to get a few I am happy with. These Asian bees are busy fluttering away so I had to set the shutter speed to bigger number.  I find taking moving objects a challenge especially bees and birds. They cant stay still for long :)  Anyway, I am happy with my progress .  Close Up Photography gives me happiness ....I will never give up on close up photography. I hope to master the art of close up photography comes 2018.  All the close up photos  are taken hand held.
