Macro Monday: Orbs

Lights in the Night

One of my favorite Christmas ornaments is actually the skeleton of a leaf. Dipped in silver, with the light shining through, it assumes a ghostly, ephemeral quality; an almost-transparent veil of misty lace. Seen up close, it reveals intricate scaffolding as strong as steel.

Check out more close-up magic at Macro Monday.
