100th Macro Monday



Thank  you to Lisa from 'Lisa's Chaos'who organises and hosts this meme. Why not visit her to see more macros?
I thought finding 100 things to post would be difficult and then I looked around.
Dalmatians and Ocicats have hundreds of spots. We used to challenge our young children and grandchildren to count the spots on a Dalmatian. Bethan enjoyed dot-to-dot pictures and tried joining up the dots on our first Dallie.
An allium has at least one hundred flowers.
The pyracantha flowers of spring have been replaced by the scarlet or yellow berries of late summer.
Hundreds of ceanothus flowers provide plenty of nectar and pollen for visiting bees - and the bee has hundreds of fine hairs on its body.
At least a hundred blackfly are gathered here to feed a hungry ladybird.

  5. Yippee! Finally I'm allowed to visit you again *sigh of relief*

    Love the dog/cat combination. And the hairy bee on the Ceanothus. And the Allium of course. Not really attracted by the little bugs. I have some lovely macros of ladybirds for you, if you want to get rid of the blackflies ;-)

  7. Wonderful post, Janice. I wish I'd remembered about the 100th post. My senior moments are becoming more and more frequent, I fear.
