Peaches- Good evening my friend. I like the white background and the patterns formed in it. The leaves are so vibrant with the green. The branch is awesome. Like the look of the thorns and have bumped into them a few times and can testify just how sharp they are. Lighitng is excellent. Clarity is outstanding. Details do so well in defining the branch and the leaves.
Excellent work
Have yourself a wonderful day, take care, enjoy #5990965

Frank, Carol, Kathy and Lorraine, thanks so very much for the wonderful comment's and support, I truly appriciate them!
Have a wonderful night!!!

Frank, LOL, I to get tangled up in them in the woods, It amazes me the deer can walk right through them like nothing!
If I was a deer, I could get LOTS more photo's LOL!

Kathy, YES they do hurt and tear your cloths LOL! Sometimes I come back with a LOT of scrathes and holes, kinda dangerous in them thar woods LOL!

Lorraine, I didn't use any special lense, I took this with my Kyocera 4 pixal and that camera I LOVED for it's macro shots, I may take it in and see if they can fix the shutter button, only will take black photo's, but everything else works. I think it is just the shutter button, I think I just shot it to death LOL!
