Shrooms and Flies

Spring is here!
Her spirit is in the earth and sky.
Flowers and mushrooms fruit and bloom.

Absorbed in the unique
expression of these mushrooms,
I noticed little eyes near my kneeling knees.

Macros lens are such great fun!

great detail the little raised bumps these flies display:


Last night I was so delighted that I could turn off the incessant
buzzing of spring flies with a switch off of the light!


My world right now seems to be full of the tiny things, to see what other folks worlds are like, go to: My World Tuesday

  2. Some of those mushrooms almost look like seashells! I almost mistook the flies for a winged spider!

    Macros are so much fun!
    But not always easy to take, especially since I rarely touch a tripod!

    Artsparker,
    No kidding eh, straight out of memory land of that movie. ;-)

    George,
    Thanks for enjoying the fly.

    Fishing Guy,
    Yep those flies were up to something!

    Sarah,
    Those flies were in their own world, maybe hoping I would not kneel on them. But there they were doing their thing and I got to take a close up look/photo.

    Thanks for your visit!
