Macro Monday – squash

I  attach my favorite macro lens and head out to the garden.

Our squash plants are finally putting on a good show.

Do you see it?


I see plants that resemble underwater oddities.  You know deep ocean intricacies.

Oh and those wicked thorny hairs.

Is that squash or a sea urchin?

Beware of the white fury monster that lurks behind the leaves.

In a day or two my plate will be full with one-eyed squid.


See you later, Bye!

    Amazing photographs of your squid squash!


  4. Fun! I’ll never look at squid squash the same again 🙂


  5. Imagination is a wonderful thing. Someone needs to write and illustrate a children’s book titled Squid Squash! I just want to keep saying it, lol! Wonderful pics Kim!


    1. Hi Susan – are you back? are you Mrs.? Do you have wonderful stories and fabulous photos to share? I can’t wait to read about your adventures.
      Squid Squash story I love that! xok


      1. Hi! Yes and yes! But I am taking a long time to adjust (we crossed a lot of time zones on our trip around the world!) and just getting through emails has been overwhelming. We had the time of our lives and I am hoping to get back creating and posting soon. =) xoxo


      2. Welcome home and congrats. Rest up, get back in the swing and savor your memories!
