Julie has taken a photo or an agave close up that she has not yet posted. It will be an interesting comparison with yours, as it is a slightly different species. You two had a similar inspiration.

That's beautiful. It almost looks like fabric trimmed with black stitches.

fantastic macro, JM

Babzy said...

Nice and delicate !

Mirela said...

Incredible, and a bit confusing. Am I correct to think there a new leaf in the center and the older leaf surrounding it? But for some reason I see an outline of a new leaf through the older one? I'm so confused... :)

That looks like a prickly subject! Great photo.

You do wonderful nature photography JM. I pop by your other blog every now and then just to savour the delights.

JM said...

Mirela, you are right! There are new leaves in the center that did not 'open' yet. :-)

I like the smoothness of this and the various subtle shadings! It's a good think you told us what it is, though, as I don't think I could have guessed!

Very nice. Kind of abstract looking.

Shades of green and a barely perceptible geometry. Daring subject, beautiful image.

I have a beautiful Agave but I have to keep it in the house. Our winters are too wet and it just doesn't like wet feet (roots).
Beautiful shot. MB
