Macro Shadows - A Carrot Top!

So there I was, cutting up some carrots on Friday for a soufflé. All of a sudden I found myself faced with this doozy, and I couldn't resist going for my camera. Isn't it interesting? As always, feel free to click on either photo to get a closer look:





Generally, carrot tops and cucumber ends now go straight to our sweet rabbit. I wasn't sure if this sprouting action was good for him (yes, turns out he's a boy!) or not, though, so I had to throw it away after taking these. Anyone know out there?


I figured this qualifies for two fun memes - what luck! I'm submitting it to Shadow Shot Sunday, hosted at Hey Harriet, and Macro Monday, over at Lisa's Chaos. Go to both to check out lots of interesting photography! And have a great week, all of you!

I love it!! Isn't it fun when you just happen to see a shadow like this? We've all become so shadow conscious, I guess! But it is the most fun! I love the colors in these! Enjoy your weekend!

Oh how cool! Great shadow spotting there! It would have taken me a while to figure out they were carrot tops had you not mentioned it! I have no idea about whether rabbits can eat sprouty carrot tops but best to play it safe where the adorable Caramel is concerned. They'd probably be ideal for planting though :)

Very cool! I would think it would be find for a bunny, they would eat carrots in a garden so I would think it would be fine. :)
