Photo Challenge - Macro

It's that time again and Miz Janice was kind enough to give us the Macro prompt for this photo challenge. Many thanks to her cause I always have fun with the macro setting on my camera. Y'all be sure to click the comments entries at the Brenda Photo Challenge Blog to see all the other wonderful macro challengers!

Here are my macros; each taken with camera hand held since I've been too lazy to drag out the tripod in this heat. You can click each one to get the full macro view if you'd like.

An up close shot of my rose moss. This is a tiny little moss plant that has the most glorious colored blooms.
Rose of Sharon porno. It's much prettier with the macro setting off. :-)

Can't leave out a macro of one of the most beloved critters around here. I share hoppy shots a lot.

Macro can even make these little bitterweeds look lovely and regal. They smell horrible so I'm not sure what Mr. fly is so attracted to.

Did that say what I thought it said...as I re-read "Rose of Sharon porn." That is too funny!! I don't think flies are known for their discriminating tastes. Great photos.

Great shots...don't ya' just love the array of colors on the Moss Roses? You were pretty lucky to catch a fly on the bitterweeds...I guess that's luck...hmmm...at least it wasn't on the Rose of Sharon, that would have been indecent and required a *warning...ha, ha.

Aren't flies attracted to poop, too?

Wonderful photos. I love the light on the bitterweed, and the rose moss is terrific. I LOVE that plant/flower, but it was so close I had no idea what it was!
