Raindrops On Sunflowers - Macro Monday

Or something like that...

I'm not sure I'm getting the macro thing. So I get a couple pictures I like, as close up as my camera will focus.



The pollen in this first picture is what I was going for.



However, I like the picture better with the source of the pollen included. That's not a true macro though, is it?



Likewise this raindrop.



I wonder if I could enlarge this enough to see myself in there, taking the picture. I kind of like the thought of being inside a raindrop. (Definitely click to biggify - actually, the first one is clearer.)



Same time. Same tree. With flash.



I'm not a huge flash fan, but... I like it!

But is it a macro?

For more Monday Macros...

I am an amateur, so I don't know. It looks like a macro to me. Either way, they are beautiful pics.

Yes Macro! You are doing a great job. I too am new at this and wonder sometimes. You are doing a great job. Keep 'em coming! The pics are wonderful.

Those are gorgeous! I so enjoy your blog! Hope we can get together soon. Maddie saw a white tent at the fair and said it was "Sara's tent."

lisa said...

Awesome! The last two are great shots!

Alice said...

After much deliberation... this is a macro photo showing an inverted micro of the barn and hammock?! What a capture!

WildBlack said...

WoW! Sara, you are doing a great job! Amazing shots! They are definitely macros. I like the way you experimented with the flash. me too dont like it that often, but rear flash setting comes very handy at times! Hope to see more macros from you :D

These are STUNNING!
I really do need to get out my magnifying glass and try to figure out the buttons on my camera....

June said...

Oh, wow! Beautiful photos! I wish that I could take pictures like you do! Impressive!

flowerweaver said...

Very nice! Put ME in a raindrop, please!

Actually the rain north of us the other day seemed to rejuvenate our well...the mysteries of the aquifer!

I consider them macro's, especially since your backgounds have a nice blur to them. Good job.

Mellimaus said...

It looks like a macro....but what do I know?

I LOVE the raindrop w/ flash; very cool colors! Nice job!

Christine said...

Love 'em! I don't have a "macro" lens either but as far as I'm concerned anything that close up is a macro shot.

Laughing Orca Ranch said...

Yup! Looks like macros! lol!

You did good!
That last one is my favorite. I also like the one with the source of the pollen. Nice composition.

I would say you have totally gotten the macro thing down...wonderful photos...all of them!

zulluzoe said...

Celeste said...

Beautiful shots, I especially like the second raindrop shot. I am not sure what the true definition of macro is either but as long as we have fun taking the pictures, that is the main thing :)

Very green with a touch of yellow sunflower. Very nice job. I like the water drops and the term biggify.

Patches said...

Oh my! Those are all wonderful! I am in love with the first rain drop one!

Holly said...
