141/365 Soft summer green

I have no idea what kind of bush these little flower buds belong to, but they're growing in the flower bed in front of my house and are quite cute!

I first noticed the soft, delicate leaves, but then, with my trusty macro lens in hand, I turned my attention to the teeny buds and love the result.

Each bud is about the size of a BB (as in BB gun) or, if you prefer, the plastic head of a sewing pin.

I love the monochromatic, watercolor-like quality of this photo. It looks soft and peaceful. It's the perfect end to a summer day!

Camera: Canon 40D with 60mm macro lens, 1/125s, f/2.8 at ISO 400 at about 7:00 p.m.
