ABC Wednesday: V is for Veins

After deciding that veins would be my V word, I went on a vein hunt armed with my camera.

I felt victorious as I found a veritable feast of veins.

The sheer volume of veins was very noticeable.

The problem was my camera kept veering this way and that as the veins were everywhere.

In between the strong vertical veins in the next shot are little barely visible veins.

The variegated ivy in the next shot has lots of veins.

Ivy is a vine and I bet you can't say vine vein vine vein 10 times very fast.

Veins have such important functions in humans as well as in plants. But I couldn’t help admiring the pretty raindrops beaded on most of the leaves you photographed. :)

Yes, I did notice and appreciate those tiny veins in between the larger ones. And you are correct, I cannot say "vine, vein" 10 times quickly :) Lovely close-ups of the leaves!

Hello, found your post at ABC and wanted to take a look. Your photography is wonderful and the commentary quite nice, too! Carver, you are quite the talent. And condolences on your Blogger problems; as you know, WordPressers just went through a general revolt to get an "autochecked" box removed! Peace, Amy
