Welcome to Macro Moments Challenge: Week 5 and thank you to everyone who entered. For this week’s challenge there is a theme-Macro Plants and Flowers. Head out and shoot or dig into your archives and share a favorite with us!
Congratulations to Arkenaten at A Tale Unfolds for his winning entry to last week’s challenge- Crawl Before You Walk? Not This Time!
Arkenaten’s photo is stunning and I learned a lot from his accompanying narrative, as I have been lying in wait for butterflies in my garden for several days. Do take a look at his work on his site.
An important reminder–If you want to be considered in the judging, please submit only one photo per entry, but you may enter as many times as you’d like.
Don’t you just love the photo above! It is a composite created by Mark Rothwell of Dragonphotographic, @dragonphotographic. I was introduced to Mark’s work in the Facebook group Self Taught Photographers. Mark calls the photo, “The Macro Photographer”. I am including it in this week’s challenge post, with his permission, of course, because it is too clever not to share.
This is a place to share the beauty of macro photography and learn from each other. Please join in! A new challenge begins each Wednesday, and I announce the winner from the previous week when I post the new challenge. The winner’s photo will be featured on this blog used as the banner in the announcement for the next week’s challenge, unless I am requested not to use it.
Instructions for participating in the challenge are found at the end of this post.

Here’s how the challenge works:
- Choose a favorite macro photo from the past week or from your archives.
- Create a new post on your blog entitled “Macro Moments: Week (insert week)“.
- Add the photo to your post and a brief description. I would love to know, as I am sure others would, too, what camera and lens you used and your settings.
- You may submit more than one photo, but submit each in a separate post if you want to be included in the judging.
- Deadline for submitting your entries is 8:00 a.m. Tuesday, Pacific Time.
- Create a * pingback to this post and/or leave a link to your post in the comments section.
- Tag your post Macro Moments so others can find it.
