real fairy light

Found myself stuck in a car park this morning waiting for my daughter to wake up, so I got myself down to very small creature level and hunted amongst the moss for something nice to take a picture of.
I could hardly operate the controls (stop down metering )as the camera was pressed into the ground to get the right angle, I had to shade the lens and ignore the icy wet ground soaking my jeans (sniff), but I'm glad I did, there's a beautiful world down there, available to anyone - no fancy safari or even baby sitters needed. Hoorah!

The usual SMC50mm M 1:7 at F8/30th and 65mm extension tubes. plus sunlight. Uncropped.

Thanks folks,
I'm sure it's not to everyone's taste but I am really taken by it. I think it would really benefit from being printed as large as possible, I reckon it would stand going to A3 and would be a real talking point in the right place.
