Today I’m participating in the A Word A Week Challenge. This week’s theme is “arch”.  I encourage you to click on each photo to see a larger view. If you like what you see, please subscribe to this blog to receive updates of the new photos I post, usually 3 to 5 times a week.

I’ve been waiting for an appropriate photo challenge theme to feature the photos below, and I think arch is just perfect. I love the tall pink grass with its lovely seeds and how they swing gently in the breeze. They get so tall they arch down from the weight. They ‘re a challenge to photograph because the background isn’t always what I want, but I love their pink color and the many arches they create. This type of grass is technically called Pennisetum setaceum ‘Fireworks’ (Variegated Purple Fountain Grass).

Today I’m taking part in Macro Monday at Lisa’s Chaos. I thought I’d take this opportunity to continue sharing the photos of morning dew I captured almost a couple of weeks ago. You can see more photos of the morning dew on pretty purple flowers.

Today I’m featuring close-ups of the morning dew on blades of grass. Here are a couple of shots I really like, as they show both tiny droplets and one much bigger one in the middle of them. You can click on each image for a larger view.

I love how well you can see the reflection of several blades of grass in that one big drop of water.

I never noticed how fuzzy grass blades can be. The dew makes the fuzz stand up pretty clearly.
