Exploring moss

Today we had sun!  I celebrated by photographing backlit moss with my Raynox DCR250 macro conversion lens attached to my 100mm macro lens to get really close.

Moss really is surprisingly beautiful and interesting when you get close to it.
macroLike a forest of tiny trees casting long shadows in the afternoon sun.

A single strand of gossamer was caught in the moss.

And I found the tiniest of baby snails on one of the stems.  The only way to see it was on the screen at native resolution.

I haven’t been blogging much recently.  I need to concentrate on my degree for the next few months and there just doesn’t seem to be enough time to blog and keep up with everyone else’s blogs, and take images, process them, study, be a mum and wife, keep house, etc etc.  So I am going to blog once a week for a little while now and hopefully do better at reading the blogs I follow.
