This weeks Fan Of… is the first daisy of the year, & where there’s one, more are sure to follow.

This is my first all natural, outside flower of the year, which hopefully means spring is properly here, & a lot more flowers will be starting to bloom soon. These first 3 shots were taken in the morning, in low light & a stiff breeze (so a bit blurry).

Wing Imprints in Snow — Fan Of… #99

Hi all 😁 Feel free to join in this weekly challenge whenever you find yourself thinking “I’m a fan of…” (see below for how to).

This weeks Fan Of… is wing imprints in the snow.

A couple of weeks ago we a had over one foot of snow fall in about 24 hours. The next day when I was out getting some macro shots of icicles, I noticed some odd impressions in the snow. It turned out that these were impressions of pigeons wings from when they had landed & sunk unexpectedly into the deep snow & then taken off again. In the 1st & 5th shots you can see the impression of their bodies, with the wing pattern spreading out from that point 😲

Last week saw me hit the big 50 & so it was present time.

Icy Close-Ups — Fan Of… #97

Hi all 😁 Feel free to join in this weekly challenge whenever you find yourself thinking “I’m a fan of…” (see below for how to).

This week’s Fan Of… is macro shots of ice. Getting in really close, you can see the very structure of the ice, whether it be frost crystals or frozen raindrops or icicles. In some you can see all the trapped air bubbles, wheras in others, looking more closely at the surface, you can make out faint geometric patterns (see first pic).
