This is similar to yours from awhile back, Ellie, and still has that underwater feel, even though I know it's not.

Spring is in the air even here in Holland, but I keep thinking it's too soon. Have all the bad bugs been killed yet???
Very sharp and detailed photo. Very nice bit of green for the snowbound.

This looks like something to put in a health salad smile

Great close-up. I never realised that moss makes flowers/seeds/whateveryoucallthat smile
Very nice Ellie. I like the transparancy of the stems

Plants are a very good example for us. They do spectacular things like this ... They always try to do till it works ... A beautiful lesson of life !!!

Love your use of macro and the DOF is great. I also agree with Ginnie it does look like it's under water.smile

there is that awesome moss "stuff" again. I do prefer the last one perhaps because the moss is more isolated but this is also fantastic ellie
