Macro blossoms…and some visitors.

Remember that time we skipped the city to see cherry trees in flower? Well, ok, it was last week and I published a post about it yesterday, but … who knows, if your memory is as short as mine, you might need some help!

Anyway, when we stopped to have our picnic – a smart idea, as it turns out, because all bars and restaurants were completely full and some had even run out of food (!) – I got out my macro lens and tried to take some photos of the flowers. I took loads, but a sit happens all cherry flowers look the same. And taking a photo of the bees and other pollinators was virtually impossible: they flew around at fifty zillion miles per hour and by the time I found one, carefully stepped closer, tried to inch the lens as close as possible and focus, they were on their way to another flower. Arg!

Here’s what I managed.

About Full Of Daisies

I am permanently in love. Things I like: purple, pasta, silk, autumn, the smell of mould, candles, cachi, having friends, water, new things, rice, eggs (all eggs!), fresh grass, olive trees, shiny things, glitter, hanging objects, windcatchers, wind, couscous, wasabi, carnivores, presents, snow, leaves, orchids, feathers, cappelletti, meat, fruit (all fruit), more del gelso (Morus alba L.), pigs, candles, christmas, polenta fritta!, separating egg whites from yokes in my hands, cartoons, dragons, the ocean, nudibranchi, cows, mercury (the metal), cosmos (the flowers), thunderstorms, Mika, turtles, acquariums, green and blue (mixed), siccamores, spring, snails, 24, porc with a sweet sauce (apple, cranberry, tomatoes jam), looking at a swimming pool upsidedown and underwater, english accent, open-minded people, driving, blue skies, checkered tablecloths, butterflies, books and cartoons in rhyme, painting eggs, the star-shadows that football players have, silver, laughing, Vivaldi, bells and chimes, white and purple, creating. Complete Happiness: Early morning. Sun, with a breeze; a pond with water lilies. A house, with a garden, full of plants. A vegetable patch, lemon, orange and mandarin trees. Cosmos everywhere. Birds in the trees; a tortoise eating the salad from the vegetable patch; a mammal (I couldn’t decide which one would make me happier) close by. No houses for as far as the eye can see. Me, a man that loves me and that I love. Friends coming over for a lunch that I have to prepare, and have all the ingredients for all ready in the kitchen.
