Picture Perfect: M Is For.........


Time once again for PICTURE PERFECT. This week our host is Heather, who has chosen the theme of 'M Is For..........'

Heather's own 'M' was 'Macro', which by a (not so) strange co-incidence, is my chosen 'M', too!!  LOL. Yes, I know, predictable me. But  do love to take macro shots. We have Heather's permission to post several shots this week, so here are mine:

1) Irridescent Irridescent

2)  Mean Green Mother Mean Green Mother

3) Pale Pink Pale Pinks 3

    1. Thanks Shayna. Flies actually make very good macro subjects. You'd be amazed at the variety of colours and patterns.
