Posts Tagged ‘Macro Monday’

I haven’t done a Macro Monday for some time, but I was playing with shots of the flowers on my Christmas cactus (better late-blooming than never) and liked this one. I hope you do too and that it gets your Monday and February off to a brilliant start

I guess this might qualify for Cee’s “Flower of the Day” challenge, even though it’s only part of a flower.

The generally preferred method of taking macro photos is with a macro lens, unless you’re carrying a camera with a telephoto lens for bird photos. In that case, the preferred method of taking macros is from about 6′. 🙂 That’s what happens at the Preserve unless I’m taking my photos with my phone. In this case, think telephoto at a distance. Welcome to Monday.

Although I know this isn’t really pointillism, all the little drops of water on the hairy bits of the plant remind me of it.

As Christmas week begins and the first of our two daughters arrives home tomorrow, I’ll be taking it a bit easier with blogging, although I’ll still be putting out a post every day.  Just can’t seem to shake that habit.  It will be family time for the next week or so and I’m looking forward to that, as I hope many of you are as well.  So today, I’m featuring a macro shot from a croton plant that badly needs repotting!  Spellcheck wants me to call it a crouton, but I won’t do it!  I think it sounds more like something from a sci-fi movie.
