Light bulb moment!
While I was walking the dogs in the bottom paddock last week, I stopped and looked for the macro functions; AKA the little flower icon. I found it. I pressed the button but nothing showed on my screen. Then I remembered that when I first bought the camera I HAD used this function and that it worked in conjunction with the manual function!
I set the camera and took several photos (see below)
A little fuzzy
A little clearer
The wind was blowing (as it does on the slopes) and I had to hold the next flower's stem so that I could photograph it.
Because I love photographing my animals...

On one of our [many] walks earlier in the week, I took these photos below. I used the Auto function and zoomed in on the subject!
Dew drops on a spider web across the foliage
I wanted to capture the early morning sunlight on these grasses
Close-up, the pink tinged blade of grass made a beautiful subject
The next photos I took from the top. The fuzzy background is the gravel below the flower.
HAPPY MONDAY TO YOU ALL!

Those are some nice first macro shots - congratulations. And I'll have some more pit mining photos over the next couple of weeks for your memories :)ReplyDelete
I love macro but with my big go-to lens I have to back up and zoom in, then it's not so macro. You got some great shots here.ReplyDelete
