Macro Monday is easy to play, snap a macro (or any close-up) photo, post it on your blog and come back here and sign Mr Linky. Don't forget to visit each other. :)
I dunno, he looks cute and then again, not so cute! I wish you had been with me when I saw the baby cardinal trying to fly - you could have really taken some great shots!My macro monday almost made me lose my marble(s)! http://www.soeursdujour.com/2009/07/marble-macro-monday.htmlKath
What a cute little creature.Happy MM.B.
Hello Lisa, these little urchins look less threatening than those black ones with long spikes that I have seen...
How cute this little sea urchin. Thanks for sharing. Have a great night.
I'm going out on a limb, but I'm thinking this guy does not want a hug.
Sushi on the hoof!...er... fin? Okay maybe not. Pretty cool shots... in a creepy sort of way.
Great shots, Lisa.
I love your urchins Lisa. I did a duh when I linked with Mr. Linky. I hit my URL too quickly and entered last weeks by mistake. I put the correct URL in and now I have two links. Sorry.All of my good macros were shot with a Nikon F3HP and slide film. I simply can't afford to replicate that quality in digital (yet). Sigh.JohnPS once upon a time, I had to decide between Canon and Pentax. This was back in 1970 when Nikon was king. I chose a Pentax Spotmatic (never regretted it) because the accessories were cheaper and I was pinching pennies.
What's that ? looks like an old rasta wig thrown on the ground, lol !
what is that?
Wow, that looks prickly!! nice shots.
Cute and beautiful light and colours on it.
Looks like "IT" on the old Addams Family show!
Every time I see a picture of one of these, the same thought goes through my head. That I really really really would like to taste them someday. I know they're delicious, and I've wanted to buy them when I see them at the local market in Provence, but I just don't know how to go about opening them. I'd love to try them someday, it's on my bucket list! LOL! Love your pictures, as always. I'm playing again this week too!
Amazing photos of these sea urchins! I am especially intrigued by the extra pinky tones in the first photo!
Interesting creature! Ha ha.
Great shots of the sea urchin! Not exactly cute and cuddly are they? ;-)
Cool shots!! Watch out you don't get stuck!
Is that what an urchin looks like!
Lisa, these are wonderful urchin photos. The light and detail are wonderful!
They are quite the interesting creatures! Wow!
Very cool little creature! Hope you had a great 4th!
Love the little urchins. Ours are more of a darker purple here on the Gulf Coast.
What interesting little spikey things! COOL!
Very colorful! Like Dani said we only see the darker purple ones down here. I hear they're very tasty but they just don't look that appetizing to me LOL
What an interesting little creature! Happy Monday!
Hi, I've enjoyed following Macro Mondays and I finally decided to join in! Thanks! I hope I did it right :)Jessie at Blog Schmog
Now, why would anyone think this little guy was edible??
I want to know who was the brave person who first tried to eat these things. Somehow you made him (her?) look so cute!
Such an interesting animal.Beautiful photos!
What a spiny looking thing!! He's cute.Good pictures!
reminds me of ME in the mirror in the morning. Except I have a face.
Sea urchins are edible, some people eat them raw! I don't know how it taste like since I never taste them!sorry I posted 2 links because the first url doesn't work.
What a cute little creature! Hey, what did one sea urchin say to the other sea urchin?Oh never mind, I don't think sea urchins can talk :-P
It is rather cute. I am sure it isn't aware of that though; no chance of it getting a big head ;-) . I didn't sign up but I have a macro photo up on Monday's post by chance.
