Macro Tuesday

Today is Macro Tuesday. The macro setting is usually used to take pictures of insects, flowers and other objects close up.

My camera uses the flash when it’s in Macro mode even when there is ample natural light. To fix that “problem” I just held the flash down when taking these photos.


Does anyone know what these are? There were 2 trees filled with these little guys at the park by our place.


I saw these flowers on the way home. There was actually a bee buzzing around but by the time I get my lens changed on my camera, he was gone.


This is the chess/checkers table at the playground near our place. I love that we have so many parks in our neighborhood!

    Love the action shots! I can’t believe that your KA was spinning when you took the picture. It totally looks stationary. Man, I have camera envy right now!

    Great set, lots of variety! The drinking fountain is beautiful. And Roxy is such a diva! Is your camera a Canon? That’s what I have. You might want to mess around in the “Tv” manual setting to play with shutter speeds…you’ll be able to get some action with your mixer that way. Nice work!

    Steph – it’s a Nikon D40. I definitely need to read the manual to play with the setting more as far as shutter speed goes.

    CB – I know. I kept taking pictures hoping that one would show it in motion. I should have taken it out of child mode and used something else to show a little blur of action. Maybe I’ll try again this weekend.
