Macro Moments: Week 33

I had a very cooperative subject for this week’s challenge, a Wanderer Butterfly pupa with lovely glistening gold trim.


I have discovered that even if I have my Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ80 set to iA (intelligent auto) I can still find out the settings used. The shot was taken at f/3.3, 1/320, ISO 80, focal length 4mm. I might be misunderstanding the focal length but it seems to me that must be the depth of field.

I have lightened the photo a bit and also applied some unsharp mask using an old version of Photoshop Elements.

Macro Moments: Week 27

This week my macro moment is a photo of a Monarch butterfly egg.


It was taken with my Canon 350D, Sigma macro lens with Raynox lens clipped on.

Unfortunately my home internet connection isn’t working and I forgot to bring the details with me to the public library. 😦
