The Ironbark tree

Sunshine’s Macro Monday

I commenced this photo challenge with a flower, then a leaf, so to continue with my theme for this Macro Monday. The bark of an Ironbark tree – with a spiders web thrown in.

      1. Considering where you live I’m now wondering if your idea of smallish the same as mine!

        By the way, I took your advice and moved further away from the subject when attempting a macro image and it worked! Though not as close up and as sharp as some of yours have been. I’m saving the photo for next Saturday’s photo challenge.

      2. Smallish is about a fingernail. Glad it sorta worked for your macro. Has your camera a macro function? I use mine when I can get in very close. Otherwise I just set Auto and move back until I can get the right focus

      3. The long lens has a switch either macro or normal. The standard lens does not. The dial on the camera has various settings and one that says M and I assumed that meant Manual. Generally I use Auto. Occasionally I use the flower setting or movement/sport mode… when I remember!

      4. Yes M would be manual. I don’t have the ability to lens change. I use the continuous shot function when I remember as well. This is good for insects and birds who take off when you don’t expect it.

    1. That is a great idea. I read a post where they buy second hand cameras and get them serviced by the manufacturer and it costs less that buying new. A camera shop may send the camera off for you but there will be third party costs.
