This old, living Gum Tree seems a great example of resilience to me. It’s being crowded by Ash Trees and its exposed roots are clinging to rocks where over the years the ground has been washed away by a creek.

This path leads to the railway station near our home. In 1985 either side of the path was nothing but weeds, stones and baked clay but when a neighbour retired he started planting shrubs and caring for them. I’m sure very few people care or even know what job he did for his entire working life but everyone who walks along the path appreciates the work he’s done here.
For this week’s Macro Moments I’ve taken a photo of some little ants on a Hoya flower.
I took some photos with my Canon 350D and Sigma macro lens but this one taken with the little Panasonic Lumix TZ60 set on iA was the best.
Waiting in anticipation of some delicious seafood. It didn’t disappoint!
This week my “Macro Moment” features a tiny Jumping Spider, just a few millimetres long. It reminds me of Father Christmas with its whiskers and it looks like there is fur on top of a hat. Maybe though I’ve just been driven bonkers by all the Christmas paraphernalia about. 🙂

The challenge this week is to illustrate, “New Horizon“, I think this photo fits the bill.
