The park diamonds.

I admit, hairy buds are one of my favourite things.
Especially after some rain or mist. All the drops that attach to the tiny little hair are so photogenic.
That could be another reason why I like hairy cacti. Or the ones with very small spines. Nothing better than having something so cool to shoot right outside my balcony door.

But I do not grow those. Those are some wildflowers (calling them weeds sounds offensive) I found in a park few weeks ago. Morning mist left everything covered in tiny diamond that were shining like crazy.
Almost no wind and very little people made gave me all the freedom and time to shoot what I wanted - furry buds.

And here are the flowers that the buds will into.
A little less charming if you ask me.

Es impresionante cómo hacer una foto y acercar el objetivo, nos muestra un mundo totalmente diferente y maravilloso. La naturaleza es asombrosa,my dear friend. I've taken photos with my phone; It isn't the same to do it with a professional camera, but I enjoy it a lot
