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?

  1. Hi,
    I have never used a Macro Lens, but I know the photos from these are unreal, and I agree it is like a different world. πŸ™‚
    I will take a wild guess at the photo, It looks like a palm leaf, although the colour doesn’t seem right, it’s the first thing that came to mind. πŸ™‚


      1. Another vote for a leaf, and another observation that the color is very different. However, it isn’t a leaf.


    1. The voting still favours the plant kingdom, but it isn’t a leaf or a pod. Yes, I agree that something we take for granted becomes mysterious when we see just a little bit of it.


There, I'm finished. Now it is your turn:
