Aahhh... yes... sooo stinkin' amazin' !!! LOOVE this one, my dear friend..! My kinda shot, as you well know!! The lightin' in incredible, the way it lights up the leaf veins so well!
I've done quite a few shots like this myself, I even did one , where I took a macro shot of my eyeball... and then placed one of my macro leaf shots over my eye... And tweaked it to where my eye looked like the leaf. LOL! It's in my gallery some where!! :):):) Thanks for sharin' this with us !! :):) Masterpiece!

Thanks so much, Steph! I'm really glad that you like this. The lighting in natural (as with almost all of my shots) I created the effect by holding the leaf in front of a spot on the water where the sunlight was reflecting off the surface.

Thank you, Daisy! I always enjoy your comments. This shot was taken handheld. I simply held the leaf in front of a spot where the sun was reflecting off the water to create the lighting effect. You should definitely give it a shot!

Thank very much, Chuck! Your kind words mean a lot to me. This is just an average fern. It is a close up of a few of the leaves.
