Macro Fruitography and Zoom Shots
« on: March 18, 2023, 04:10:05 PM »
What's up All!

Having fun with macro shots of fruit trees and stuff, and wanted to share:

Clicking on pics and zooming in you can see more detail.

Gulf fritillary munching on p. nitida; I can't go for that, no can do!


Moved to monster passion vine, have at it.


Prickly pear flowers




Maprang leaf


Some pineapple



Share your macro shots of what you're growing =)

Nice macro.

Here's my photo using my zoom feature.



I tried macro but the birds did not like me to get that close.

Whoa Kaz! Those shots are sweet!! Really love the little hummers. Trying to catch a decent shot of the ones around here, they are too fast. There has to be a nest nearby.

Zoom and macro together seems like a natural match.

I honestly don't think I've seen hummingbird pictures as good as these (then again I don't go searching) but wow!!

And rob that pineapple is crazy, I seem to never find cool looking caterpillars just lots and lots of wasps :-[, can't forget all the hornworms that destroy my peppers each year  ;) although I'll admit, they are pretty striking

Tru, thanks for the complement. I just use an old Sony camera (DSC-H90) that I had since 2012. I used it for work (retired now) and for fruit tree photos.

The hummingbird nest on my loquat is 5 ft from my front door so I can't miss it.

Awesome photos! I need to get a macro lens, and I need to actually start using my digital camera. The cellphone is just too convenient though, when out working in the yard:







roblack, when I sent my friend pics of my first Passionflowers, he asked if they were real. After confirming they were, he dubbed them the Drag Queens of Flowers. I thought it a fitting epithet.

LOL! Hey flip!!

They are over the top =)

You can get a really cool macro for iPhone and Galaxy here, this is what I'm using (w/ iPhone 11 Pro Max):

...super cool pics, really like the frogs. So glad we have better doors and windows now, they used to keep me up when it rained at night.

And what's going on there!? Bug Battle Royale?

Your black pepper pic reminds me of when I brought a coworker a piper nigrum plant, and told them it was a "black pepper vine."

They were confused, and started they had never seen a "black pepper."

JCorte, is that a Brown Anole in the first photo of your most recent post? Are they in California? Beautiful photos!

Too funny about the Black Pepper, roblack! In the bug photo, an Assassin Bug is eating a fly that was pollinating my Pickering 😳 Fortunately, enough flies survived to achieve excellent fruit set😄. Thanks for the macro recommendation!

Speaking of Anoles, saw this Green beauty at Naples Botanical Garden this past Friday.

Amazing pics of paradise Janet! You have a great eye.

Gotta post some anole pics too. We have several kinds here, including the bright green natives.
