Feather Droplets


Taking a Sunday stroll with the camera to Dronley Woods.
A cold day but nicely sheltered in the denser parts to keep the worst of the chill out. Spotted a couple of red squirrels but even with my zoom lens struggled to get close enough for a decent shot.
My shot of the day is this feather holding on to some water droplets. Flipped my 50mm lens and handheld it against the body for this macro effort.

Macro Testing


I was reading about a new Kickstarter lens today and remembered that I had a set of lenses that I’ve never actually used from K&F Concept.
They’re magnification addons these ones are 52mm so they screw into your kit lens with no problems. I just rammed all four together to give it X17 magnification and they worked pretty well on some slowly dying flowers.


I’ve tried reverse rings and extension tubes for macro stuff but these do just as good a job so I’ll keep them in the bag for when I’m out and about.
