Maple Leaf Macro

Posted by

Another one of my reversed lens experiments. I plucked this leaf from the large Japanese maple tree that was in yesterday's photo and put it on the windowpane of my room. The low afternoon sun shone right through the leaf, letting me get this close to it without casting a shadow.

Thanks a lot to everyone who commented on my photos, or even stopped by for a visit. The comments have been pouring in pretty fast and I'm finding it increasingly difficult to reply to each individually. I'd rather spend that time in viewing others' photos and commenting there. But I do read each comment individually, and if you ask me something specific, I'll answer that.
