You Capture - Macro

Thursday, September 17

I love shooting macros. Here are some I got with the new dSLR. This is a bracelet I got in Barcelona last year. I love it, but somehow it has a crack (not shown) and it's not very comfy.
Those flowers that are supposed to attract the butterflies.
Obligatory rose macro.
Helicopters from the neighbor's maple tree.

The rest were taken with the "super macro" setting 0n my point and shoot. I got one with the close flower in focus, but ended up liking this version better.
OK, don't scroll down if you don't like spiders. I've never seen one quite like this and he was holding still. They only scare me when they are in the shower, my bedroom or moving too fast.

Let's go see more macros over at Beth's blog.

I love the helicopter shot! Those are such a part of my childhood! And I saw the warning on the spider picture, but looked anyway. Gross, but cool!

What a beautiful bracelet. And I can admire the beauty of spiders as long as they don't try to make my space their space.
