I don't remember Queen Anne's lace. Is it a vine?
Here we have White Lace, which is an autumnal vine.
It looks attractive and is well captured!

Marvelous detail. I've never seen Queen Anne's lace at this stage. You've captured it beautifully.

Bernie said...

Wow! That's not just a stunning shot, but a great subject for a photo. I don't think I've ever seen a shot of this stage of this plant's life before. Just wonderful.

I've been driving past QAL for weeks, telling myself I need to stop and snap or the time will have passed. this beauty reminds me that tomorrow is most definitely the day, wait no longer! I love this photo.

Not sure if I have ever seen this plant before. It looks more like some creature or plant in the ocean. Very nice and sharp. Thanks for the kind comment on the bee. It's just I like to do something different all the time and felt I wimped out this week with a bee.

Karen, What a great macro shot--that is really unusual and beautiful. The hibiscus is not in my garden (darn it). Both varieties were at the San Diego Zoo--I think they are the prettiest ones I have ever seen. Have a great week. Mickie :)

When I first saw the 'link image' on Macro Monday's hub list, I thought it may be a cactus. Wow...this is incredible.

BRONZE LONGHORN is my Monday Link...stop by if you can.

Ralph said...

This view is amazing and beautiful. The massive look is akin to a starburst, with the lacy flowers to be racing away from the center. A unique and lovely view!

imriz said...

looks thorny and itchy when touched, but the shot is perfection:)
