More Macro - Frosty Morning!

Still in the Midwest - it was clear overnight and with the cold front that passed yesterday, was below freezing for the first time this season, according to the weatherman.  Of course, still no sign of aurora, but with temps in the mid-20s this morning, I stepped out for some frosty photos.  These are literally yards from our door, in the grass and weeds that pass for our lawn, but there were still some interesting ice crystals forming.  These are all taken with the Canon 100mm macro, typically at F/22 for depth of field, which drove the exposures to a quarter second or so in the early morning light...  Click on the images to load the full-resolution images.

Of course, the temperatures didn't stay below freezing for long, supposed to be in the 40s for highs today, but now it is trying to snow - can see it out the window as I write this at noon!  Looks like Tucson is expecting highs near 90F, so quite the difference, but we enjoy the change, and have been taking in the Fall colors here. We've been in a whirlwind of visiting friends and family - Melinda needs her calendar to keep track of who she is meeting for breakfast, lunch and dinner the rest of the week! She is loving it as she is feeling great this week as we enter into cycle 4 of chemo next week...
