    Thanks jrw! That looks like some crazy ice you have there. Glad all we received was snow. I've had enough of the ice storms this year.

    Nice looking gecko. That guy is tiny!

    Macro lenses really show off detail that's even hard to see with the necked eye. My thumb has a lot of wrinkles. This guy was one of the monster sized geckos around my house and even in my house.

    Give the thread a little bump. Some of these were in the weekly themes.







    And the stacked version

    A couple more snowflakes
    This is a different angle than the one I posted in the image of the week post.


    And a little bit of melting on this one.

    Thanks, Joel!

    After seeing Jayson's wonderful snowflake shots, I wanted to find a smooth, dark background free from the fibers found on gloves or mittens. Joel, I know that you often have lovely backgrounds that are 'free' - forest, field, etc, but I spare no expense for my hobby. Accordingly, the smooth, dark background for my snowflake shots cost over $30,000.

    In all fairness, I should point out that this particular background just might have a few other uses, such as transporting three kids in their car seats.

    I just brushed off the glass, waited for attractive snowflakes to land on it, and shot the pictures (handheld) before they slid down off the glass.

    Great snowflakes John! The background looks very nice indeed. You must have been snapping fast with a warm car or they would have melted...unless you left your car outside on purpose. I am going back to taking photos on glass to get the nice clean background.

    That is an expensive prop!

    2 points to John for most creative dual use of a prop
    If you see me with a wrench, call 911
