A new meme

Here's a new one I discovered: Macro Monday! My camera isn't too terribly fantastic at getting close-ups, but I don't mind trying. And so, here's an entry that should work both for Macro Monday and Ruby Tuesday... Strawberries! 

Here in Israel, strawberries are now in season. This has been a great winter for fruit so far - the oranges, clementines, and pomelas have been sweet as candy. Now the strawberries have come into season, and they're just as yummy - lucky us! And lucky you, I photographed some especially perfect looking ones:






There you have it! As always, feel free to click on the photos, to get a juicier view :)


For more macro photography, check out Lisa's Chaos. And for more reddish photography, go to Ruby Tuesday, at Work of the Poet. Have a great week, everyone!

Your camera worked very well here. Now I'm hungry -- I love fresh strawberries but I'll have to wait until June for the local crop.

Almost makes you want to count to see how many seeds are on a strawberry. :)
