On the "grassy knoll" between my neighbors' house and ours was this single, lonely tulip, opened flat wide! The colors were fully saturated so I kneeled down to photograph close up with the inappropriate lens that was on my camera (Canon F2.8 16-35 mm). It wasn't until I zoomed in close that I saw this pretty little creature looking back at me.

It is always amazing what we find when we enlarge our images - A wonderful close-up Michelle! #1656740

An amazing capture, Michelle, my eyes aren't as good as they used to be so I would need a good zoom lens to spot this little beauty too! #11468503

What a find and fabulous capture, Michelle. I would need my lens to see this too. I sometimes think it is better I don't see all the little creatures around me. :) #11468562
