Don't know what you call these. Helicopters, whirlybirds, spinners or whatever else. I think they are seeds dispersed by wind.
Just playing around awhile back with a new macro setup and thought this worked in a different kind of way. At first look it reminded me of a Magritte painting.
First impressions are that a macro focusing rail would really come in handy.

These are pretty, and I mean really pretty! I love how you got them like that and your title fits this perfectly. Your bokeh is nice, and so is the exposure, and just without blurting out more and more technical things, most importantly I really like this photo a lot.

Love this one, it's sharp and neat, and the bokeh is pleasing. And I think the composition is great!
It's seed indeed, of the Maple Tree....

These are really beautiful to look at. I love that you can see the relationship between these and the insects wings. I also like how sharp the seeds are and the composition looks good to. Thanks for sharing this great photo!
