Something New Among the Leaves--Monday Macro

One of my favorite things about blogging is being able to share photographs of my plants. Taking the pictures allows me to view my plants in a new way, and, sometimes, to explore my my creative potential. So, today I'm introducing a new feature: Every Monday, I will post an extreme close-up photo of a plant, or part of a plant, that will fill the screen when opened to full size. Usually, I compress my pictures quite a bit for posting, so there are times when details are lost.

Here is this week's offering. (Click once to open, then a second time for full size.)

Echeveria chihuahuaensis, (tentative ID) after a rain shower

I've owned this Echeveria for about eight or nine months. It has been outdoors since June, and the color of the leaf tips has really intensified in the sun. It seemed to do pretty well indoors, too, in a south window.

I just did a macro monday of an echeveria too! I love how the water droplets collect in the frosty textured rosette, and I love your photo.
