Florida Version of I Heart Macro...

This week I'm in FL visiting with my family on a last minute trip…
My little three year old has kept me busy in the pool from the moment we wake up.
Today I stole a few moments to go check out some of the local sights on the front porch...
This snail was very curious about what I was doing with my camera and hand lens so close to it...
We've had rain for most of the day today, and I loved the color variation on the palm leafs.
Crazy to see the cells (stomates) in those droplets... 
Here an old piece of palm leaf on the outside…
I enjoy the color & textures of decaying plants.
And a quick last minute shot of a dead weevil.
I've never seen one so pale white/green before, and this large.
The ones up home in Delaware are gray brown and about 1/4 of an inch.
This one was at least 1/2" to 3/4".

Swing by and check out the rest of the posts for
I Heart Macro Sunday over on Studio Waterstone Blog.
