Wonderful macro. I thought at first I was looking at a aerial photo of an orchard.
vz-nostalgia: Haha. You're not alone, Ian.

I agree with your title (in general) and I agree with Catalpa (ike " an aerial photo...")! Sorry, that you have not written a short introduction, for I never know this kind of leaf/tree with these yellow points/stips, I don't know if the tree is healthy or sick? Helplessness pure, but it doesn't matter, for the pic is lovely and interesting!
vz-nostalgia: Sorry Ms. Philine for no introduction, as I felt it is not of an importance here. This is a quite healthy plant. A disease never comes in such an orderly manner. This is a back side of a tropical fern leaf, with yellow bumps being the seed pods. smile

I wonder if the creator's master plan includes 2 kids, a minivan, a house in the 'burbs, and a trip to Disney. What do you think?
vz-nostalgia: I think you just described a proverbial American dream (though, you forgot to mention a big screen TV). Many American long for it, but not many achieve it. smile

Looks like Levittown to me! Great!
vz-nostalgia: I bet something like that inspired Mr. Levitt to come up with his infamous mass-produced suburbia idea back in 1947, Mehmet. smile

Ok the first word that came to minde was "haystacks" it is like a whole new perspective on Monet's Haystacks.
vz-nostalgia: Hey, Monet and I are good buddies. We have a similar approach to things (remember my hundreds of photographs of the TVS tower at different times of day and night?). smile The only difference is, in this case I have a single picture of the haystacks, while Monsieur Monet produced a ton. smile

Are these yellow things ant houses? They don't get to live in their communal hill anymore? Poor things! This is a thought-provoking shot, V!
vz-nostalgia: The ants all has turned Republicans, Martin. Now each ant cares only about its own well being. A communal life is a thing of past for ants. smile

This is amazing, I have been looking at this a long time..I have some ferns in the garden, they have those 'seed bombs' too, great capture, but no I give you a different view waht came into my brain...that redish/brown/green road, diagonal in the picture is the highway, left and right are streets and on those streets, the architect drew some houses, the swimmingpools will get drawn in later, I know...I imagination is bigger than I
Love this macro...
vz-nostalgia: You were born to be an architect, Ms. Astrid. You know, it's not too late. If you start your studies now, you might have a chance land a job at Rem Koolhaas' office in Rotterdam. smile

Astrid, your imagination is wonderful! And my respect that you have recognized ("the lady of knowledge") this kind of fern with these "seed bombs"! Now I understand VZ' title quite better!
fascinating capture. What creator are you referring to?
vz-nostalgia: The Creator I'm referring to is the one that has a Master Plan. Do you know another one? If so, I'd like to hear about it. smile

Bit of a stretch, here, VZ.

A "cheesy" leaf shot presented as evidence of a Grand Architect?


Ha Ha! You got me!

Your tongue is firmly pressed into one cheek....right?

Ok...I'll go with that.

"GAWD" is, I believe, an acronym for "Grand Architect With Design". are suggesting gawd has the design printed in braille on the back of fern leaves.....hmmm! [grin, guffaw]
vz-nostalgia: Hey, take from it as much as your imagination allows you to take, Ray. Your idea of a Grand Architect is not a bad one, even though it's saturated with sarcasm. smile

Woouuaahhh ... is it the republican national convention seen from a satellite ? It can be the democrat one as well. Does the spores have an interesting political program ? If they have, send it here as soon as possible smile You know, I'm sure that if we come nearer, may be we can see the red armchairs smilesmilesmilesmilesmile
vz-nostalgia: You're brilliant, Ms. France. Of course, that's where the Red Lawn Chairs Society resides. smile
This is masterful Vik: a lovely piece of macro. I thought at first you'd been up in an aeroplane to do this!
vz-nostalgia: I thought I'm flying myself, when I looked at this for the first time, Chris. smile
thats an intense image and statement
vz-nostalgia: Do you really think so, Ms. Alicia? I thought of it as a relaxing image. smile
Dragging up my biology of 40 years ago..these are spores. Only flowering plants produce seeds.

Don't you just hate a smart arse!

Lovely picture.
vz-nostalgia: I prefer smart arses to stupid arses, Bill. smile
I;m surprised you still have good memory despite your respectful age. smile

that like an Army or.. could be a chain work factory ?! Impressive picture.
vz-nostalgia: It's interesting, when folks come up with their own things looking at my pictures. smile

Great title - I really get the feeling that somthing is going on....
vz-nostalgia: Something IS going on here, Aksel. Those seeds/spores are getting ripe and soon spread around the world in a great hope for a reproduction. Not unlike us, humans. smile
I can't believe even plants have 'suburbia'! smile
vz-nostalgia: They are not much different from us, aren't they, Ms. Scarlet? smile

I think that the Spores Society has decided now where they are going to fly. Find some smart bracken "arse" may be ... rroohhh ... I didn't know this word. Making photo make me improve foreign language but next time I'll make a nude picture, I'll take care it isn't a stupid one smilesmilesmile Thank you Viktor (and Bill) for this burst of laughter
vz-nostalgia: hahahahaha. I'm glad we broadened your linguistic horizons, Ms. France.

Really cool photo. The yellow bits are fascinating to look at - a bit unreal.
vz-nostalgia: It IS unreal, Ms. Jewlya. It looks so logical, like a man-made rather then something that occurred in nature.
It looks like the aliens have landed her- at first i thought it's some sort of bug, poor plant- then I thought well, everyone's got to survive. Spores is it?
vz-nostalgia: It has never occurred to me to think of aliens, Ms. Jamoula. Probably, because I'm not much into a sci-fi literature. smile
Yep. Spores they are.
Wow - what is this? the tropical fern leaf, and seeds... Very cool macro.
vz-nostalgia: You asked the question, then you answered it. Very cool. I like it. smile
