Alright, you've done it.
I am spellbound.

I love this series, a lot.
As you may know, I love rocks, and lichens, and all forms of natural beauty. These are fabulous pics.
Especially the water reflection shot.
But you had me stumped on photo #2.
And then I saw the final image -- what a surprise.

Wow.

The moth close-up is extraordinary... I was thinking at first it was fabric, it looks woven or stitched, amazing!

Kelly said...

...beautiful post, and I loved your closing, "may you walk in beauty." It's one of my most favorite sentences. I read a book on Navajo culture over 25 years ago, and that phrase has been in my heart since then. Thank you! (I wish you the same. You always walk in beauty...)

Sandra said...

The "fabric of life" is on display indeed. What wonderful textures and colours. I love "autumn's dancing waters" ... full of graceful water sprites and the close-up of those wings is quite amazing!
Have a beautiful weekend! Sandra

Your keen focus always brings amazement. Nature's colors, textures, and patterns through your lens do show the "fabric of life."

Tammie ... oh!
This is a visual poetry ...
Touches me so much beauty.
Dear friend, How beautiful the Earth, nature, life ...
Excellent work.
A kiss and thank you for this precious moment!

Yes, there is so much beauty in so many places and so many life-forms. Lichens are incredible, aren't they!

Barry said...

TL - I am in awe of you - the photo of the edges of the wing of the moth is just stunning. B

The fusion of the color that Nature creates is fascinating.

Absorbing beauty like a mushroom digesting a log,

And Like the Lichen that breathes in the richness that is our atmosphere.

However, I think I will be a butterfly instead of a moth. The moth kamikazee's into the light as if it were missing everything. And the butterfly carries its own light and prism that refracts its unique blend of colors for the rest of the world to absorb its pleasures.

Absolutely stunning...
May you walk in beauty too (although you obviously do!)xxx

sandy said...

I may steal the color palette from that first shot, Tammie. Thanks for sharing another handful of beauty.

Beautiful close up! So stunning series.
So fun when you can get so many fine lines and color in a small area.
Wish you a nice week.
