This is a superb macro, Anita. It goes on my list of favorites of yours.
It almost feels like an abstract, and I love the really detailed textures !!!

Amazing composition! The details of the veins and texture of the leaves is amazing. This imagine is making me think of winter plant life in a different way. Thank you for sharing!

I have so enjoyed coming back to this photo this week:
As an abstraction, it is striking: Perhaps it is the way it fills my screen, but I see it blown up many times on the wall of some post-modern gallery. Arresting and mesmerizing.
As yet another of your invitations to look closely at what surrounds us. The delicate hairs remind me of lambs ears (both plant and animal).

Wow, a strangely beautiful image. Gotta be the composition. Lighting is nice too, of course. Way to go!
