Well, you do have to admit….
It must be Spring in the UK..
Can you spot the bug?
They are here to get you! Be afraid!
Still having fun with the new Texture Slider in Adobe Camera RAW. It’s a fun tool and it worked well on the flower below. I love taking photographs of flowers with a very narrow depth of field – it makes the flower pop out of the background. The new texture slider gives the image a bit of extra pop!
The veins (?) in the leaf look like a city roadmap.
Sue tells me that, whilst the plant/weed shown in the first image below looks like a stinging nettle, it isn’t and you would not be stung if you touched it. I will not be testing this hypothesis. If it looks like a stinging nettle, then it will sting you. I apply the same logic to snakes. If it is a snake, it is poisonous!
For comparison purposes, the image at the bottom of this post is a stinging nettle.
I am sure somebody will know what kind of plant (weed?) this is. Spotted near Monnickendam (Netherlands) today. Almost like some kind of alien creature!
A slightly more fragrant post than the last one!
