Description

Holly bushes are vary resilient and their waxy leaves rarely fall in the winter. Many turn red in the late fall while some maintain a green hue. Eventually they will turn brown, wither and drop. Colorado's snows are usually dry but last night a very wet snow fell and, as the sun kissed the holly this morning, some of the snow melted into water droplets on these prickly leaves. Using the macro mode on my camera allowed me to capture the bright red stems, the red and green leaf colors, the veins and textures of the leaves, the snow and the water droplets with a nice bokeh background.
