Today I’m participating in the WordPress weekly photo challenge. This week’s theme is “lost in the details”. WordPress is asking photographers to capture details in their frames.

For this post, I’ll use some photos I’ve featured in other posts that show great detail. I’ll also use a few new photos I haven’t featured on this website yet.

If you like what you see, please don’t hesitate to subscribe to my photo blog and/or like my Facebook page. Remember you can click on any of the photos below to view them in a larger format.

Below is one of my newest favorite photos I took recently. It shows some leftover raindrops on new rose bush leaves. I love the various sizes of raindrops and how they catch the light.

San Diego’s Balboa Park recently featured a large display of ornamental pear blossoms. They looks beautiful as a whole, but I think they’re even prettier up close, when you can see the details of each flower. You can see more ornamental pear blossoms here.

I love the details of the petals on this white powder puff tree flower. You can see more white powder puff flowers here and some pink powder puff tree flowers here.

The next photo also shows a lot of details, not just of the cactus flowers, but of the bee itself. I love its fuzzy back.

The last photo is a close-up of a spider web made by grass spiders. I love the details of the dew drops on the spider web, which would look quite messy otherwise. You can view more dew on spiderwebs here.

A few days ago, I shared with you some photos of flowers I took recently. Today I’d like to share a few more photos I took that day, more specifically the ones with the busy bees on the yellow cactus flowers.

Remember you can click on each photo for a larger view. This is the photo I shared the other day.

I love how the sunlight reflects on the bee’s wings to show its intricate design on the photo below.

I wonder how much nectar the bees can collect from these tiny flowers, which are just the size of a bee. At least the bees were busy doing their job and I didn’t seem to disturb them with my camera.

I got lucky for this last shot and managed to get two bees in the frame, a different angle for each. Busy bees!
