Favorite photos of 2012

It's three years late, but since in every year's "favorite photos" post -- which I did for 2015 on Friday -- I say "I didn't create a favorite photos post for 2012", I decided to do something about that.

January 2012: Yucca filamentosa curls

So I went through all of the 2012 posts this weekend and have chosen my faves. I'm assuming that what I chose now is what I would have chosen in January 2013, but maybe not. Enjoy! (Remember that these are my favorite photos, not necessarily my favorite posts, which you can browse using the "best of" buttons at the right side of the page.)

The Yucca plant photo is gorgeous! Its one of my favorites. All your pictures are fantastic.

Fewer bugs in this year! I liked the one with the fungus from December. Why do you think you tend to pick macro shots (as oppsed to wide shots) as your favorites?

Loved looking back through your prior work, you certainly have a lot of shots that should make you very proud.

Mark/Gaz: thanks! Glad to "see" you around again. :)

Maywyn: Thank you!

Renee: I'm not sure, probably because it's much more difficult to compose a wide shot? I really love looking at things up close too.

Charlie: Thanks! It takes some time and effort, but the results are always worth it to me.
