This week we are posting close up/macro photos. This is probably my favorite type of photography. I am always amazed by the little surprises in the photos once they are on the computer – things you don’t see when you take the picture. About a year ago, I invested in a “super” macro lens which brings things even closer. The picture below was taken with that lens and is the center of a poinsettia.
Although you get amazing detail – the lens has a huge learning curve.
The next 2 photos were taken with the traditional macro lens. I loves the detail and colors of the caterpillar and you can also see why pinecones hurt when you step on them.

Here is my photo – a Lenten Rose
I participate in a theme based macro group on Flickr. This week’s theme is unusual patterns. My husband and I completed 2 puzzles that were each 1000 pieces during the stay at home order. Each piece had it’s own unique shape. This is part of the puzzle called “Dogtown” and it turned out pretty cool!
I participate in a Macro Monday Flickr group and this week’s theme is vegetables – so I thought I would share my macro cucumber photo with all of you. It’s amazing what you see when you get close!
This was taken early December last year – one of the mums growing in our yard
Rain and more rain
It had been raining for a few days so I decided to take advantage of it and catch a few droplets on pansies.
