A Leaf Was Calling for Macro Friday

 

leaf in the grass

 

As I was washing up some dishes yesterday my eye kept coming back to a leaf in the grass in the backyard.   It was calling to me as the light was filtering through it and the grass surrounding it.   I just felt compelled to grab the camera and take it’s picture.  Down on my belly in the wet grass I went with the macro lens on my Canon.  I left it as I took it SOOC.   Seems I got some nice bokeh in it too.

Laura is our host for Macro Friday.  I will be joining here today.   I do hope our friends in the US are not feeling too full after yesterdays Thanksgiving dinner.  Valerie

I love that you had to obey that impulse - can just imagine you down on the wet grass. What one does for art!
