I agree that a P&& camera is quite in need eventually, just like the incident you came across. I'm no expert to the macro photography. From what I heard and experienced, most shots were done with using a tripod, flashes, shutter release set, with some sheets of black satin. A bit complicate and demanding to me, but worth viewing those pictures. Love the short cut, haha. Any way, spring and fall are the best time of year for any outdoor and indoor shooting. Enjoy Kevin.
I wish I had a camera with me the other day at work going out a side door. There was a very tiny Painted Turtle outside the doorway where I work. I picked him up and put him back back into the tree line and open space near where I work about 50 yards away
The baby turtle was about an inch and a quarter in size. Cute to watch him. He was just looking at me.
Missed another nature shot, darn it!
I wish I had my camera and take a macro shot of that small turtle. The coloration on the bottom side of this turtle is amazing. Kind of a bright yellow-orange and stripes of red on the edges of the underbelly shell.
I want to meet up with this turtle and photograph him next year.
Another reason to carry a pocket digital camera in your automobile.
Never know when a great shot will be missed.
Do not leave home without one!!
Does anyone specialize in macro phography or have examples on this forum? I would like to view them.
