nature, seed pod

I am a 53 year old ageing Hippy with a love of nature . A romantic at heart but sadly single. I used to be a decorator but since my father became ill I have given up my business to care for him full time . When I have time to myself I like nothing more than to get out into the woods or the countryside and capture the sights around me. I hope you enjoy seeing what I see. Thanks for viewing. Kind regards Mark.

    OMG! Instant fave. The colors are spectacular and the detail is exquisite! Congrats on the well-deserved feature! I’m sure there will be more.

  • I will always remember as a small child we used to collect these and then race upstairs to my bedroom and drop them out the window and watch them rotate to the ground, great fun!. Many thanks for you kind and generous comment. Mark.

    Stunning macro Mark.
    Superb photography my friend.

  • Your very kind Richard thank you. It took awhile to get the shot as the slightest breath of wind would throw the focus off.
