    Excellent Kym. Was this with the lens reversed?

  • No This time I used full extension tube with my Canon 55-250 Lens and a close up filter x4 Magnification. I really want that macro Lens but tjis will have to suffice for now

    Took lots of tiny images and set up a bit of an indoor macro studio at the window to use only natural light. Wanted to work outside but the breeze was just too difficult

    That is really lovely – beautiful droplet :-)

  • Thanks Kymie insprired by your work. Tried this with a parrot feather but it was not waterproof enough so went down to the dam scouting for duck feathers and this was a tiny duck down feather but waterproof so the droplet would not dissolve

    Excellent capture Kym, I love the whispy featheres in the b/g. :-)

  • Thanks Jenni. John and I went scouring for feathers on the dam wall at the farm. This one is only about 3 cm long but looked like the downy under feather of a duck.
