Macro Monday

A couple of weeks ago, I found this little flower, waiting to open in front of my house. I'm not sure why, but I couldn't resist taking a shot:
I'm glad that I did - it makes the "after" shot more exciting, I think. Don't you agree?
Feel free to click on the photos to enlarge them, and get a better view. And do check out more macro photography of the week, at Lisa's Chaos. Happy Macro Monday, everyone!

Definitely makes the pair worth more than each individual shot! Yes, I do agree!

What a sweet picture that first one is! And so nicely composed, too.

I love the before and after. It's as though it popped open right before my eyes!

I like both photos. Anticipation and awakening. The opened flower is gorgeous. Looks like a carnation.
