Rosey Macro Monday

City Park was very lively in February but I did find a few pretty roses. They looked even brighter against the winter dull.

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 MckLinky. :) MM started on Sept 29, 2008 - THANX to all of you for helping make it such a fun start to the week!

  4. The roses are beautiful, with the tiny droplets glistening each petal. The sacks....yuck. Hope they don't contain lots of little bitsy-bitey spiders.

  10. The roses are beautiful, but the cocoons are yucky! I miss joining in on Macro Mondays but I just haven't been taking macros much. I may have to work on that.

  11. Truly beautiful, but I think they're camellias too.

    I am constantly amazed by your photographs. Even when I try, all I get is a point-and-shoot kind of shot and you produce all these marvels. I enjoy you potos as they turn up in my feed.

  14. Beautiful pictures. I do believe the last shot is spider egg sacs.

  15. We have no roses yet. I am envious. :-) Thanks for sharing yours. I loved the water drops on them!

  17. Gorgeous! Roses in February - we still don't have any and it's late May.

  18. Both rose images are lovely... the rain adds to their beauty! (I think that Teresa is correct that the "cocoons" are really spider egg sacs.)

  19. Beautiful roses, Lisa. I like the effect of the raindrops, almost like everything is made new again. Can't say the same for the egg sacs though.

  20. With roses no surprise, they are always beautiful, but the last picture, no idea what that could be, maybe a spider who loves yellow beans ?

  27. Wonderfully photographed! They look like old fashioned roses:)

  28. The roses are gorgeous! I don't know what the other things are, but I'm interested to find out! I found the exoskeletons of a bunch of locusts today, and I thought that was awesome. Hubs said I should have been an entomologist. hehe
