These are the photos of me experimenting with some macro settings on my new camera.
These two were both done with flash to change the colors a bit.
These next 5 were taken using the pre-shot color fade option on the camera. I believe the color picked here was yellowish, not green.
I think I could have spent all day taking more of these.
After walking around for a while, I came back to that spot and found this catkin on a rock nearby:
And now with the color fade on reddish-orange:
It looks like something found at the cellular level. Or one of granny's old, gaudy Christmas decorations.
These little purple flowers were right in the middle of the footpath.
