Now and then

Found in my garden

A seven-legged male green lynx spider on the Tahitian Sunset rose

A pear blossom from several weeks ago. Poignant, because none of the pears set, and the whole tree is having a bit of a struggle now. It's tough out there, sometimes, for spiders, for trees, for all of us.

They're for Macro Monday, but I can't seem to add hyperlinks these days.


  1. The spider looks as if he has conquered this beautiful sunset rose.. amazingly well caught Barbara.. yes little time we humans have to observe and relate to the struggles that these mute beings go through..

  2. The first photo took my breath away! So beautiful with the contrast of colors..

  3. I think the tree is too branchy. It's time for some overhaul pruning this winter.

  4. New follower! Love your macro shots, just beautiful.

  5. Very nice photos.

    Regards and best wishes
