Macro photography. A whole new world I want to learn about.

You should have seen me on Saturday. I was on a mission to find something I could get my camera up close and personal with. I was hoping for an unsuspecting ladybug or or leaf. Just my luck; no insects (except ants) and the wind was blowing the little berries on the bush too much. I walked into the pasture and while looking down to evaluate where to step and where not to (it's a cow pasture and if you are not in boots, you best look before you step) I saw some tiny mushrooms growing in the manure. I very carefully crouched down to get as close as I could without touching anything.

My husband has been know to say that "everything grows better in poop". Sometimes we may find ourselves in somewhat, shall I say "stinky" circumstances. Adversity? Challenges? Manure? What if we used it for our benefit and growth? We may find that if we allow it, these situations will be able to provide us with a rich environment for growth, if we can just get over the smell!
