I Heart Macro - What Remains

36mm extention tube

36mm

36mm


22mm extension tube

These are Skeletons of some kind of leaf, I've had this little treasure for several years, not sure what it is or where I got it any more. But it is oh so cool.

All but the last shot were taken with my 36mm extension tube, the last one I wanted to step back just a bit so you could see what the entire thing looked like, it's taken with a 22mm extension tube.

Today is the last day of the Holiday Shop Hop 2011

  10. Kristi, I am quite sure that this is the skeleton of a Japanese Lantern plant lantern. Does it come to a point at the bottom end? SOmetimes these can be found with a single seed that the flower produces rattling around inside!! Very Kewl!!
