Backyard plants - extreme close-up

Jackson has a new digital microscope and we've been playing around with it this week. Let's see how it does photographing tiny bits of nature from the backyard. This photo shows our subjects bigger than scale. The twig is actually about two inches long.

Aloe Vera plant.

Extreme close-up (200x) of fuzzy succulent.

Another succulent. These are green all summer. They turned red when the weather got colder.
