UNDER MY NOSE…

Playing with an extension tube on my Sony – these are really tiny images, hard to capture because you practically have to have your nose on whatever you are photographing…

…but this causes a certain difficulty in photographing anything that moves, because they rush away.  This is a case in point – all I could capture of this spider was his leg lol

 

CRAWLING THROUGH THE GRASS…

Thought I’d have a try at some macro shots – don’t have a macro lens, but I added two extension tubes (10x and 15x) to my standard lens…

…ended up crawling through the grass, and getting some blurred shots of a bee’s backside.  But I did love the thistledown.

Taken on a Sony ILCE-6000 f5, ISO 100, 1/25.  I took some later shots with just the 10 x extension but I think I’ll try the 15 x on its own next.
