Some of you may know of my frustration with the current camera, although it's not the kind of thing I usually post here. Sometime last year I messed up a setting so that it no longer took good macro shots. And that's one of my favorite things to do. So I haven't been very happy about that, since I couldn't figure out what I'd done.
Last week, I managed to accidentally change a setting and the picture resolution was reduced to a size you'd use to send in an email. Not good. And actually not even acceptable for the work I do taking pictures of houses.
It only took about an hour (sarcasm with the emphasis on "only") to figure out how to get my larger resolution back. And somehow, in the process of doing that I reversed whatever stupid thing I'd done to mess up the macro! So today, you get fun closeup pictures from my back yard.
A dried up goldenrod head is transformed to a collection of small shaving brushes.
Canada thistle? Pineapple? Pine cone? You can certainly see similarities in form across species when you move in close.
I didn't actually take this one with the macro lens, but it's pretty close. The late afternoon sun was turning the insides of split milkweed pods to gold.
And this is my favorite of all, the remains of a Goatsbeard flower...
...and her sisters.
