In the thistle meadow

Creative Exchange 
My World 
Macro Monday 

I usually make one entry for each challenge but today and this week I have my grandsons here so the time for blogging is not very long :)

UTSNITT – I cut out a sections of my photos. I like to do so because I love the details and don’t want to miss them when downscaling.

This last butterfly for today is a small one.

I used my macro lense today.

I especially like to study the eyes, legs, horns in the forehead and their “straw”. Of course also the pattern and colours. The last one has fringe around the wings.
I never stop being amazed about the creation in nature.

My and the boys’ feet.

I sometimes do the same thing with my photos. Just show close-ups of the original photo.

Love your butterfly photo. :)

Oh, my goodness, Brigetta: This is a wonderful post. I absolutely adore the shot of you with your grandson. Let’s see...put my feet together with my youngest grandchildren and we would have 78 years...I think I have you beaten in years. It is so interesting that shots like this fascinate you because I was always taking pictures of my grandbabies’ hands against mine. Guess picture taking minds sort of think alike. Genie

Oh Birgitta -- this is such a lovely post. Thanks for making time to put it up -- and thank you too for sharing your reasons for not having much time. They are adorable (Grandpa too ;>)...enjoy the rest of your visit. It's great that you are teaching the boys to enjoy nature as much as you do.
