Very cool macros. Some of those pictures remind me of kaleidoscopes.

Awesome, awesome, etc! I especially the third one, although all are great!!

All very beautiful...especially love the first one - pink and green is a favorite color combination!

Jay said...

The first and second look like what we call 'houseleeks' - my grandmother used to have them growing on a low roof. The last is a very dramatic shot! You can really see that the cactus is a swollen stem, and the 'spines' are adapted from leaves!

Loved the macros!
Is the last one a nopal?

I got some succulents from IcyBc the last time I went to see her in MI. So hopefully they will survive this winter. They are still tiny.
