I Heart Macro - Pony Swim

Last week marked the 87th annual Pony Swim and auction here on Chincoteague Island.
For all those who live here it is a tradition we are happy to see come and then go as it brings with it a large congregation of tourists which makes for one of the busiest, most demanding weeks of the year if you are in business, as we are.
Last year I posted about the Pony Auction here.

So on Monday, our day off, I ventured out to the pool for a little R&R and this is the first thing I saw when I got into the water.
A Pony shaped leaf.
I took a picture of it as it lay underwater, (see below) but it was really hard to get into focus as the water kept rippling, so I gently raised it up onto the edge of the pool for this shot.
The veins in the leaf coincide perfectly with the outline of the horse head don't you think?

It's amazing what you can see when you take the time to notice and really look. That's why i love I Heart Macro.
Head on over to Studio Waterstone and see what everyone else focused on this week!


  1. Great macro - it really does look like the outline of a horse!

  2. This is such an interesting, informative, thought-provoking, and creative blog! I enjoyed this horse photo and story so much, then started scanning down at your other stories about the historical mug, and others. There's so much you present that is new and could be learned! I "had to" sign up for your blog and look forward to many more great stories and photos!

    Thank you for the lovely presentation! --Sharyl ~ Sharyl's Jewelry
