Sugar pink…

Hello everyone,  I’m still in macro mode at the moment so here is an image of the bracts which form the outside of a Protea flower (also sometimes known as sugarbushes).  It’s hairy texture is both brilliant and a nightmare for macro as the hairs pick up every speck of dust and dirt.  The colour reminded me of the confectionery Turkish Delight hence “Sugar Pink”.  Click in for a larger image  🙂

Watching…

I took this image in December during our last summer.  It was an image I’d forgotten about as it was a busy time with work and Christmas. I’m endlessly fascinated by the wonderful world of spiders, their camouflage and habits.  Click in to see the details of this spider sitting in her summer flower –  watching and waiting 🙂
