Macro Monday


Macro Monday is hosted by Lisa at Lisa's Chaos.
Macro Monday is easy to play, snap a macro (or any close-up) photo, post it on your blog and come back to Lisa's blog and sign McLinky.
A winged lion atop San Marco Church in Venice, Italy.
The winged lion has long been a traditional symbol of Venice. It is the symbol of Mark the Evangelist (the apostle), who has been the is the city's patron saint ever since his remains were taken from a tomb in Alexandria, Egypt, and brought to Venice in 828 AD. 

Over the next few weeks I will post more lions from Italy.
