You won't need your machete to cut through this macro of moss clinging to a rock.
This is wonderful, Michael. I have never seen moss in macro. When I first looked at it, without having read your comment, I really thought it was some kind of jungle growth - looking so thick and strong.

@givethemhell: I find it amazing too. Thank you, Eva.
They really remind me of Mandelbrot Sets. This is another great study of objects that most wouldn't consider. Just goes to show that great photographic material can be found in the most obscure of places. Hey, Its All Around You !

This is an amazing close up Michael, when I first saw the thumbnail I thought it was ears of wheat!
a 5* macro :)

Very interesting capture Michael. I like the whispy appearance and texture. Creative, nicely framed, it could be a painting or art on the wall. Excellent.

@Japanalia: Thank you, Gabriela. I appreciate that.
Wonderful macro Michael. Too bad this moss isn't bigger, considering its beauty. Love the details in the highlights. I too often blow mine out! I rated this one using the stars on the side...hope you don't mind!

@Tracey: Thank you, Tracey. That's a fine comment.
As we don't have any indication of the scale it might as well be a huge plant! Very good macro!
31 Mar 2008 12:32pm
@vu@granby - Wolfgang: Thank you, Wolfgang. You are quite right about the need for an indication of scale.
Jolie composition verte

Super shot! I've prepared moss layers around some of our plants, but unfortunately our squirrels love to dig in and around them :-O
31 Mar 2008 7:58pm

Superb capture. I like the texture here!

Je n'arrive pas à définir si cette texture est douce ou si ça pique... Bonne lumière, la couleur verte est bien restituée.

Nice framing and details.
