Ready to SPRING ... (0)
Very interesting work and creative idea. Using macro mode is unusual and impressive. I like pictured scenery, great DOF, nice and excellent detailed twig and very impressive tree on the right side of the shot. It seems to me BG is not the best but this is matter of taste. My best wishes, TFS and only points tomorrow.

Lovely close up.Well seen and composed.POV,3D effect,lighting and clear details are excellent.
Very clever! Shot on the Ides and posted on St. Pat's -- too clever by half, Jay!
I like the green of the message and the promise of spring these swollen buds hold.

clear signs of spring arriving with a well told story. But finding out which kind of plant the green buds belong to - I think I will have to ask you to post another view of that location in four to six weeks. Right now it is just a guess saying elder (Sambucus canadensis), or lilac.
Enjoy the Spring, happy St. Patricks, and cheers for a good glass of beer.
With thanks, and best regards,
We got no Bud here, you got bud. Happy St. Paddys Day,
This is a nice macro of a lilac bud, TFS.

I KNEW spring was a'comin' to YOUR neighborhood!!
Nice macro shot.....and nice idea to focus solely on the "subject" and leave the BG to fend for itself!!
Nice touch for St. Paddy's DAY!!

Very good idea and good closeup.
Excellent light, details, BG, colours, composition and POV.
Thanks for sharing!
Maybe you should have used your green thumb. You have so many different kinds of plant,trees and shurbs to choose from.But thank you for thinking of the Irish holiday.
Do you know that St Patrick was saint before splitting of Catholics and Orthodox, and some of Americans living here, in Petersburg, celebrating it together with their local friends? I was surprised to know it, funny thing. Good photo, this.
