Macro Moments

Persevering with the clip-on macro lens for my mobile phone. It’s difficult to find that sweet spot when focus is at its best when you can’t see the phone screen for the sun!

Macro moments

After several unsuccessful attempts to capture the new growth on raspberry ‘Yummy’ with phone camera and compact camera, I tried again with the new clip-on macro lens on my phone and captured these three shoots.

Then I tried these three stawflower heads from a shelf in the Potting Shed, I think they were pink originally, but still pretty now they’ve faded.

Finally, a sweetpea seedling (showing where it had the chop last week) and a rather battered hebe ‘Champagne Ice’ twig.

My images are still hit and miss; getting close enough to the plant so it looks clear in the screen is easy, but the minute I press the shutter button, everything moves and the focus with it.

I won’t be winning any competitions with these!
