Funny Photo - Macro Monday

I have been so slack  busy the past few weeks that I have missed out on Macro Monday hosted by Lisa each Monday.   It is always such a fun way for me to start the week.   Look at this wildflower/weed that I found in my neighbor's yard (yep - Marvin and Lynda's again!) after the rain this morning.

We are not sure what the correct name for it is, but in this particular shot it looks like an alien or some sort of cartoon-ish character.  It really cracks me up!

This second photo is my interpretation of it's various body parts.   Gotta love the humor found in nature!

Have a wonderful week and be sure to visit Lisa for more great Monday Macro shots!

Also, check out this great give-away over at Rita's The Coffeeshop Blog.  Color Inc. is giving away a 16 x 20 framed gallery wrapped canvas.   Wouldn't you love to win that?  I sure would!

  2. At first I thought it was some sort of carnivorous sundew plant which secretes digestive juices in drops like the ones you have here. Well done!
