Macro Monday

I used the chickens for my macro attempts, since the light was poor and the birds not very cooperative, I had to trash most of the images, the blond feathers turned out the best but the brown and black ones are prettier and more interesting.

I'll try again on a sunny day

Well done, cloudy days are alright for shooting macros, the clouds act as a diffuser, next time try shooting in night mode or cloudy if you have that setting..:-)

oh, I love the reddish colors on the blond feathers! Cloudy days are best is what my photographer friend told me when she would take pictures of my horses and kids for me.

Your photos are great...I really enjoyed the "hands" and the Easter bouquet...gorgeous!

Are you planning on coming to the Western Arts Roundup on May 1st? I'll be at the Fairgrounds helping set up on Friday the 30th and probably until 2-3 on Saturday. If you make it, look me up!
