Year 2 ~Week Nine: Macro Photo

Oops I just realized I had two week 6's the second one should have been week 8 Oh well I guess counting isn't one of my strong points! 

March's theme is checking out... SO....
 I walked outside yesterday with my camera heading for my forsythia which I think might have buds? Looked across a yard full of snow and came back in the house and took a picture of my cactus....  then tried to take orchid pictures... but they were shy and immediately started bouncing up and down to avoid the camera focusing on them.....

I can see the little pink wings on the orchid waving at me to go away!  Can't you?

Oh those needles look sharp! Your orchid might be shy but she is a beautiful color! I didn't want to go outside to check out anything either!

Lovely photos and perfect for this week's challenge - the orchid is the most beautiful colour, so vibrant, and I love the cactus, although it looks painfully sharp!
