Weekly Photo Challenge: Sun pt.2

You got me thinking with this challenge today. I know I’ve already offered up one effort – but those pictures were taken “out of storage” so to speak.

The weather was changeable today, and there were lots of cloud-sun-cloud-sun moments, I took a walk to the local woods with this challenge in mind. At one point, the sun began to shine as we walked past the pond, and I noticed a bit of a sparkle on the water between the weeds. So I just snapped a quick distance picture with the same macro lens I do my close-ups with.

As is becoming the way recently, I didn’t think much about it until I downloaded the pictures from the camera onto the computer and zoomed in to the sparkly bit of this photo.

I have posted the original picture, and put a box around the “sparkly bit” that I zoomed in to.

Imagine my surprise and smile when I saw …. well, you can see for yourselves in the second picture!

No manipulation whatsoever (except for the crop and enlarge)!
