Whoever would find out this beautifull shades in the garden. Great!

Looks almost like a spider web. I enjoy this one.

I love this. At first glance it looks like a cockerel dragon, but it also reminds me of the photographs of Fay Godwin's Glassworks series. E.g.: http://www.djclark.com/godwin/gal12.htm

Reminded me of the crash landing into a hedge of a very misfortunate bird, kindly covered by a passerby :-O

I love the mystery of this! Did you hang a tissue in front of those plants and photograph what the tissue revealed/hid? Amazing!

Wow -- thanks, everyone, for the fun and feedback!

I went out to a local community gardens at lunch yesterday -- after all the pale and grey things I've been seeing, I really needed a color boost and thought I could find it there. Less color there than I thought, but lots of great texture. More images to come from the same spot, BTW.

For those worrying about gigantic spider nests and spooky cocoons, fear not. This pic was caught at someone's garden plot -- they've covered young tomato plants with what looks like a Tyvek fabric shroud to protect them from the still-burning Texas sun.

Omega, a special shout-out thanks for the treat -- a photographer who I'd not heard of (my ignorance is vast) and whose work I now love!

Cool textures...it did look like a cocoon until I viewed it large sized. Nice one!

If angels leave shadows, then this is a whisper of one. I like this piece. I think it would be a nice to see it hanging in a room with the sun streaming through the windows.
