I Spy....

On a recent trip to Longwood Gardens 
in Kennett Square, PA,
I had the opportunity to view orchids up close and personal.

Did you know,
if you look closely,
 there is a little world inside an orchid?

A macro lens brings it to life!
(Unfortunately, I could not use a tripod at this time
which would have allowed me to increase my DOF.
Yes, that's an excuse...
and I'm sticking with it.)

Below, I spy...

...a pink Praying Mantis.
Do you see it?

I spy...

...a dancer.

I spy...

...a space alien.

What did you spy?
