Macro Monday – Feather Iridescence

The true mystery of the world is the visible, not the invisible.
– Oscar Wilde –

macroThe most interesting thing about Macro Photography is that it changes the size of your world. Where a landscape photographer might take a photo of a whole field of flowers, a macro photographer needs only one flower. That one flower can be broken down into parts that become almost unrecognizable to someone who has never seen a flower from that perspective.

I’ve just started to use a Macro Lens, and I don’t claim to be anything but an inexperienced novice. It is hard not to be excited, however, about a whole new world that exists within my every day world!

On that note, would you recognize that this is a magpie feather?
