Posted by

I could not resist this perfect pincushion.

Canon PowerShot G11 1/800 second F/4.0 ISO 160 7 mm

I blog at cruztalking.blogspot.com--just everyday pictures and prose about what's going on in my corner of the world. Since I travel a lot, that corner changes with the wind.

Like a spindly forest. This one is really great. So dense and detailed.

It looks so soft and makes my nose tickle.

@Christine Walsh: either the softness will make your nose tickle, or the allergies??? Thank you for your comment!

Phil David Alexander Morris from Canada

It looks prickly and soft at the same time. Great macro.

Wild macro, Cruz - you've taken us so far into the macro that this dandelion could be changing form - like steel wool off brass scrubbers.

@Stephen Phillips: you are funny!

Cruz from exurbia, United States
