Meanwhile on my garden…
I took my dusty macro lens out of my bag while my kids were playing in the garden. I haven’t taken pictures with this lens in a long time. And I forgot how great it is, the Canon EF Macro 100mm f2.8 L.
My garden is very poor, there are not many flowers in it, so I didn’t really have a subject to take interesting shots, but nevertheless I found a lovely living creature on my lawn and tulips. Single shots only.
Macro photography is a wonderful way to explore the tiny world around us. With the right equipment and technique, we can capture the intricate details of small creatures that we might not even notice with the naked eye. Recently, I had the opportunity to take some macro shots of a small caterpillar and a small spider walking on the grass in my backyard, and the results were truly fascinating.
The first subject of my macro shoot was a small caterpillar, about half an inch long, crawling on a blade of grass. I was amazed at the level of detail that I was able to capture with my macro lens. The caterpillar’s body was covered in tiny hairs, and I could even see the texture of its skin. Its little legs were perfectly formed, and I could see each tiny segment clearly. As the caterpillar moved, I was able to capture the way its body undulated and its legs stretched out to grip the grass.
The second subject of my macro shoot was a small spider, also about half an inch long, walking on the tulip. The spider was moving quickly, and it was a challenge to get a clear shot. But with some patience and careful focus, I was able to capture the spider’s eight legs in sharp detail. I could see the way each leg bent and flexed as the spider moved, and I could even see the tiny hairs that covered its body. The spider’s eyes were also clearly visible, and I could see the way they moved as the spider scanned its surroundings.
Overall, I was thrilled with the results of my macro shoot. It was amazing to see these tiny creatures up close and to capture the intricate details of their bodies and movements. Macro photography allows us to appreciate the beauty and complexity of the natural world in a whole new way, and I look forward to exploring more of this fascinating world with my camera in the future.
