Mite-T Tiny

Love these clovers that grow hearts within their heart-shaped leaves.  But I also love that tiny little spider/mite that I caught sneaking around in them.

These are very cute. I hadn't seen them before either. And what a camera you have! The little spider could not hide from it.

Wonderful, I love the hearts! Love the bug too. They are some of my favorite subjects to photograph.

Jennifer said...

Very Nice. Ive never seen clovers like that, cool. Cute spider too :)

Sweet clover and sweet orange legs on that teensy little spider. I was hoping it wasn't a mite, for they can kill a plant in a hurry. He looks like a spider I have to look up. Afterall, you are in TX and I'm hoping he isn't a jumper, or worse yet, poisonous. Take heed dear TexWisGirl

Wow--great shot Texwisgirl--I see it. These are beautiful clovers and amazing how clear that little spider is :)

Chris said...

Great Macro subject.

Trisha said...

Such pretty little hearts! Spiders really freak me out, but I can handle that size no problem :)

Marvin said...

Great macro of the heart-within-a-heart clover, and the spider too.

Farm Girl said...

So nice I will check you your linky party.

IanH said...

I dug through the snow to look at my clover. It was brown with no mites.

Millie said...

Very pretty! I think they would taste very good.

John S. Mead said...

Superb macro for MM & overall a fine blog! I'm glad your kind words on my blog brought me over here! I'm now a follower! Since we are kind of sparse on Pine trees up here north of Dallas, the pine siskins are also sparse ;-)

Cheers!

Beautiful GREEN! It's soon St Patrick's Day! (Notice my Chicago-penchant?) :D

Sweet! I've never seen clover like that!

Amazing how that little mite blends in so well with the plant!

These are adorable!

Rose said...

I would never have noticed him if you had not mentioned him!

Clytie said...

I've seen hearts in clover leaves before ... but I have never ever seen any like this! Red hearts on green leaves! They are stunning!!!

I probably wouldn't have noticed the little critter until you pointed him out, I was way too caught up in these hearts!

SquirrelQueen said...

Wonderful hearts within hearts, they are beautiful. I see that little spider mite, great catch.

Dani said...
