Dew

Dew on Gaura

One of the great things that photography has taught me, is to really look at
what's around you.    It's also taught me to love, enjoy and really absorb the
seasons, especially as they change.   I would have to admit that this has
 given my life a fuller perspective and appreciation.
This morning I was out early, and on my back home, I noticed a cluster of
tiny white flowers peeping out between the wild veld grasses - Gaura!!!
how did they get there?!   The contrast of the tiny, delicate white flowers
and the rougher, rugged grasses really fascinated me....
Although the sun was already well above the horizon, they were shaded
enough to enable me to capture their fine detail, which to my surprise
still included dew drops!!!

PS. for the gardeners :   Gaura doesn't normally grow amidst grasses .... evidently
someone "cleaned" out their garden and dumped enough to shoot and grow -
the wonder of nature, hey!?

Your macro photography is fantastic -- oh how we quickly dismiss this diminutive as insignificant and a waste of our time - and yet they are wonderous to behold!

I am not familiar with this flower. Your photo is a wonderful example of a good macro shot - delicate and beautiful.
