The red color of these teeny moss spore capsules caught my attetnion.
The teeny ice “crystals” didn’t show until the picture was in the computer.
A miniature magical garden …

What a pretty picture. Amazing what a close up or macro shows.

I would like to give you a sincere complement. How rare to find an individual who takes the time to spot the beauty in nature’s miniatures. The photo is absolutely incredible. I think it is one of my favorites. Thank you.

WOW Thanks for the complement. The reds jumped out at me with the angle of the sun. Of course I was down close to start with.

A magical kingdom in your garden indeed!

Wish they were in my yard. They were near a creek we hike often.

Not an easy thing to get down and photograph especially when the ground is wet and freezing. I like the little droplets along the stems! Great capture!

I’m glad you like it. It did help that the hill was so steep that I didn’t have to bend down as far.
