Macro on the Marsh


My first attempt at Macro for a while, and the best image today was taken with the 300mm? Despite the low wind forecast there never seems to be a day without wind in Cornwall which makes the macro photography rather tricky. So here are my attempts at macro and a couple of bird shots:

This image was taken with the 300mm, I thought the glow on the wings made for a really nice shot. Best viewed enlarged.


This one taken with the 100mm Macro lens.


Macro lens again


Caterpillar with Macro lens, this was the hardest one to get.


Back to the big lens stuff, still trying to get this image as I want it, wings and tail fanned out with head in good light, nearly there!


Stonechat to finish off with as he was contect to pose for the camera.
