I decided to give Cee’s Black and white close up challenge a try.    I recently bought an inexpensive macro lens for my cell phone so this was a good time to test it out.

I headed straight out to the cherry trees on the lawn.  One of them has an infestation (bad) but all the little critters were perfect for this challenge. (good)

Here is a little ant on the cherry leaf.IMG_3081


Then I couldn’t help myself and I headed to the tiny flowers on the lawn. These flowers held still while I took the photos.IMG_3107The one is a little grass daisy
