Macro . . . With A $99 Nikon

Recommended Posts

Like playing with macro images, just not into expensive cameras. Took this at about 9:00 on a Sunday morning. Full sunlight, but the heavy growth behind this soon to be 3 headed flower literally looked black with very little adjusting. The L340 is completely autofocus --- or sometimes "auto-out-of-focus" might be a better description of this camera's ability.

May post a few more of my macro images. I love looking for the unusual image. This one made me think of a three headed serpent. Thanks for looking.

Tiny orchid like flower . . . on a U.S. penny for scale. Once more, auto-out-of-focus keeps this from being as sharp as I'd like. The penny is approximately 3/4" in diameter (I believe that makes it about 2cm to you folks across the pond) and the width of the flower is less than 5mm.

The most amazing part of this photo is that I actually saw it while walking. The dead mosquito on the right seems to have been stuck by some sort of sap.

According to the US Mint Coin Specifications page, it’s exactly 3/4".

Again according to the above page, it’s 19.05 mm (or 1.905 cm, if you prefer).
