I'm home for a few hours between vacations. These are pictures of flowers from my garden. The first is a peppermint babies breath. The actual flower is about 1/8th of an inch.

Daisy and tiny ants. I've looked through everyones photos but haven't had time to comment. They are wonderful though. We're off now to no-internet-land but I wanted to post something before we left again.

Great work. These are very sharp in contrast to the background. That's what this challenge is about.

Hi yesterday!

Both lovely photos. "peppermint babies breath"... what an interesting name! (some scientists have such imagination "! And it has great colour.

The photo with the daisy and ants also highlights the shallow depth of field very well. I think it's great you captured the insects on a flower... that's good to get an idea of the size of things too.
