1/80s at f/3.5 ISO 250 50mm macro lens.
The weather has been so bad for going outdoors and shooting that I am revisiting some lost images down in the archives that were taken this past summer.

Wow! I can't imagine "losing" this one, either -- it's a fantastic macro! I think all of us who live where winter hits hard are digging around in our piles of older photos. And according to Phil, we've got to suffer through 5 more weeks of this awful stuff!

Beautiful burst of sparkle and softness, Laurie. February is a real drag, isn't it? We actually had a nice day yesterday -- high 50's F -- and went to the zoo. So did everyone else :)

Wow, Laurie, I must agree... A WINNER!!!
Fantastic light and details. Beautiful on the eyes, too!
Funny, but it kind of reminds me of a NOVA shot, depicting the moment of conception. (Must be all of my years as a labor and delivery nurse, messing with my head! LOL)
Best of luck with this stunning image.
Blessings, Lisa♥
