really great frost crystals. I have tried macro photography a few times, but I have never gotten the knack of it (at least not yet). I have an appreciation for how challenging these images are, and they are all very well done!

Thanks mtnman!

To be honest these were a piece of cake compared to taking photo's of insects, not worrying about moving too quickly or thinking the flash might scare them off after the first image is quite refreshing (as was the weather... lol)

Wonderful, fascinating, unique pictures! I like them in b&w, it suits the subject. Glad you took the opportunity to spend even a few minutes taking pictures of them - if it had been me this weekend, I would not have done that (was sick for a couple of days, too, and only now regaining any desire to look at pictures or read anything that has words strung together for more than a couple of seconds). I would have LOVED to have seen that.

Sorry to hear you were sick as well, and glad you are feeling better, thanks for the kind words!
