Macro May

The fabulous Kim Young of SHUTTERbag USA has been hosting a Macro May challenge over on Instagram.  The idea is that you use your iPhone with a macro adapter on it.  I don't have a phone like the cool kids do, so I am participating with my DSLR and posting my photos on Facebook instead.  There are no prompts like with Fat Mum Slim's Photo a Day challenge, so anything goes.  Here are some of the photos I have shared ...

Hans Solo LEGO macro

Spring blossom macro

Dandelion fluff macro

Grape Hyacinth macro

This one isn't a true macro, but it was taken with my macro lens.  So it counts.  :)
Spring blossoms

Pine Tree macro

This flower is actually green, but I didn't like how it looked, so I messed with the colors and ended up with this.
Flower petals close up

Lilacs macro

This moth appeared one night in my kitchen.  He was hanging out on the backsplash.  I convinced him this flower was a better place to sit and he apparently agreed for a while.  :)
White Moth macro

Apple blossom macro

Macro is fun but hard.  Even the slightest breeze can throw my focus off.  I have been playing around with closing down my aperture more when I am able to, without lowering my shutter speed too low.  I will continue to practice and play.  And this challenge gives me a good reason to!  :) The beauty of digital!

Linking up with these lovely ladies ...
