Clematis Sequel


Our garden adventure of the week was finding our cat, Tigger, in a stand off with a fox.
Given the fact that the fox was much larger and a hungry predator,
I think that Tigger used up one of her nine lives.
After I scared the fox away, Tigger continued to want to chase and stalk the fox.  
Thus, I have officially moved Tigger into the Dumb and Dumber category of all living creatures!



On a different, but equally colorful note, here are some more captures of my clematis ~
a continuation of Monday's theme.

I was very intrigued by the abstract quality of some of these shots.
They are all about color, texture, and design,
while only hanging onto a thread of realism.




Wishing you a very happy weekend!

So lovely, Anna. I love this series. I really need to develop my posts more into more than one shot. I think you have inspired me to do so!

Now following you too! :)

Your macro images make me want to climb into the centre of the flower and discover what the world inside it holds. I can only imagine the tendrils being the galaxy and each bloom its own planet. My mind swirls with the stories that may unfold therein. Very interesting photos.

I see you are enjoying playing with your new lens! Letting go ones grip on reality once in a while is no bad thing either - let the imagination and photography just fly :-)

Your macro photos are totally exquisite. I need a macro lens for my Nikon, too. I have a 50mm lens with a lens reversal adapter but it's just too glitchy to use. I guess I should try it again, I lost patience. These are just gorgeous.

Excellent photos of the clematis.

I'm glad your cat survived the fox. We have a fox in our neighbourhood too, which I find very scary for the local felines.
