Mum's serendipitous fern beside the ramp is recovering after the concreters and the builders have gone. It has benefited from the cooler and moister summer. Lots of love, Robyn.

What an eye for a shot you have. This is a scene that I would have missed, but you have caught a delicate picture. Again I dips my lid to you. Cheers Ian S

Welcome back @m@pol@, I appreciate your comment, and having seen the eclectic range of images that appeal to you, may I say that I am impressed by your fine taste for great photography. I am honoured to be included. Thankyou.

And Ian S1 I certainly appreciate your comment too, but let me assure you, when you have a new macro lens on the camera, everything out there in the garden that has potential seems to catch your eye. If I had a hammer, everything would look like a nail! I hope the Kiwis don't mind the title. What do you think?

Kind regards, Ian S2

Thank you Luud. Your folio and your image of Deers at Sunset are all gold for me. Y star

Such a delicate artwork of Nature. Amazing macro, Ian.

Greetings, Inessa

It pleases me very much, Inessa that you appreciate this. I am still quite fascinated by the macro - it really is a different kind of photography.

Cheers, Ian

To my special panoramio respondents: Rafal, Eva, Craig, Monika and Michael!

Each of you is special and I appreciate your various affirmations of nature and of the photograph. It was taken at our back door, where the fern has self sown and emerged from a small crack in the concrete!

Michael, I do like your unfurling fern, too. It is very sharp, as well.

Forgive me for the delay in commenting as I have been away for several days in East Timor, and came back only today.

And Eva, your attentiveness is also very special. As you ponder each photo, I trust that you are able to read the joy, significance, beauty and message that each communicates.

All the very best to you all.

Ian / Yan
