Spider caught a seed...

...and GrannyJ was fortunate enough to capture an image of that seed and its parachute. Isn't that a beaut? I've no idea which fluff ball produced the seed, but look at all the fascinating detail. And to think that at one point I couldn't get a decent macro shot with my little Canon. (Then one day I took the trouble to read the instructions.)

Final Reminder: If you're reading this on Sunday, hie yourself on over to Casa Sanchez, 1459 W. Gurley, at 2:30 for the monthly blogger meet-up.

Yep. turn it to P, and then press the macro button! Took me ages too...

It's a lovley one. There seems an inordinate amount of fluff in the air this year, mostly here it's willow seed I think.

Some fab posts I've been missing, look forward to seeing you snapped in your pink skullies for the bloggger meet!

lucy -- I don't recall willow fluff being a problem here; on the other hand, there are the cottonwoods. I'll try to get that picture taken today. The green number isn't as large as I had hoped, meaning I doubt if I can even squeeze into the others.

Super photos. Glad you figured out the macro. I've had better luck with the telephoto up close than the macro. Did you get a bigger turnout for the meet this time?

steve -- my LH always used a telephoto for macro shots; he found it made a much better picture. As for me, I have a one-lens Canon that is basically a space age Brownie.
