Macro Moments Challenge: Week 30

Welcome to Macro Moments Challenge: Week 30 and  thank you to everyone who entered last week’s challenge. The theme for this week’s challenge is “Birds”.  Get out and shoot, search your archives, or find something indoors that depicts the theme.  Remember, for this challenge your entry needs to be macro or close up, not just a bird sitting on a fence. For my bird photo, below, I cropped the picture tightly. 

A quick reminder before I announce last week’s winner.  You may enter each challenge as many times as you’d like, but please include only one photo per entry.

Congratulations to justpat1, a brand new blogger, of  Pat’s entry is entitled “Eye of the Beholder”.  Please pay her a visit to view her work as she gets her blog up and running.

My inspiration for choosing the bird theme was this little guy.  He was all fluffed up after taking a bath in my backyard fountain.


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. 

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.

If you’re not sure how to create a pingback,  Here are instructions
