It is not very close a few hundred miles away in Alberta. I used to go there very often when I lived in Calgary. In my will, that is where my ashes are going.

I should mention that it is in the Valley of the Ten Peaks on the way up to Lake Louise.

Bulc I enjoy viewing your detail orientated photography!
Did you notice....Birdmans baby mimics your fiddle heads form?
So when does the bus trip leave to go to Banff?

Thanks, hava. I like the detail pics myself because I can see later things that my declining eyesight won't discern in the field. Often they turn out to also be some of the prettiest pics I take. I had not noticed the similarity between my and birdmandea's photos until you pointed it out and then it seemed obvious. Good eye!

That's what makes photography all the more fun... It's like discovering a little present when you find the unexpected surprises hidden within.

What a beautiful place for a final rest.

Wow! I had not noticed that either, until you pointed it out! What a coincidence!

This is my first contribution to this forum, a "freshly made" image that I hope it could be good enough for your contest.

It is shooted in Málaga (Spain), and includes a close image of a Chrysanthemum leucanthemum (I think common name in english is "oxeye daisy") androceum, a plant that while european in origin is supposed to be a common invasion in USA because of garden usage.

The small (very small... about 2 mm lenght) bugs are, by now, unknown species.

Hope you like it.

Amante, I do like it. It's like going out to the garden with a magnifying glass, but better. You've done the work, and I get to see the detail.

They are beetles in the family Dermestidae; likely in the genus Anthrenus. Commonly known as carpet beetles, their larvae can be very destructive to animal-derived materials (wool, silk, fur, feathers, etc.); the adult beetles primarily are pollen feeders, as your image aptly demonstrates. Nice shot!
