A birdy Macro Monday


Macro Monday is easy to play, snap a macro (or any close-up) photo, post it on your blog and come back here and sign Mr Linky. Don't forget to visit each other. :)

I opted to go for more close up photos today than macro. Hope you don’t mind. I’ve always loved weathervanes and could not resist this one. But, no way was I going to climb up on that roof for ya’ll to get a macro. Seems they are getting more scarce every day.

This carved eagle was also irresistible to me, I did get a little closer to it.

  8. That's an interesting looking eagle, quiet scary I must say.

  9. That eagle is just wonderful, and I love the silhouette of the weathervane and the angle you used to capture it!!

    By the way Lisa, did you notice there was an award for YOU in my post from Saturday?

    My Macro Monday is up now too. I so enjoy playing this, thanks for hosting!

  10. my first pre-meditated Macro Monday! Thanks to the Soeurs du Jour for pointing me in your direction.
    And really, who doesn't love a weathervane!!?? But so happy you did not climb on the roof ... we are perfectly happy with a good ol' zoom shot!

  12. Yes, one more thing that seems to be biting the dust. I must do better this summer at taking barns, old gas stations (if I can find any) and now too, vanes!

  13. Oh,I LOVE LOVE LOVE the weather vane. That eagle is pretty awesome too!

  14. The weathervane rocks!!! I'm surprised you didn't climb up there for your close up. You're so adventurous.

    I love coming here.

  16. Hey Lisa,
    Now that I have my new camera I want to grow up to be just like you. Your and Dennis' photography skills just blow me away. I can learn a lot by studying you two. I posted a macro today using my new Rebel SXI.

  17. I prefer crawling around on the ground taking macro....so I will not expect others climbing to do the same! The second shot is great - he is looking for som action!

  21. That is a great carved eagle, I saw a lot of hawks and things I didn't know what they were yesterday in SW WI. I also found the perfect thing for your squirrel, almost got it, but didn't want you to try and use it. Will post a photo later in the week.
    (chuckle, I should have gotten it anyway...)

  22. Hi Lisa,

    Love the photos. I'm a real sucker for weather vanes and have one perched on top of my barn. It's tipping over but looks kinda cool that way! The eagle is starring us down.

  27. I love the angle on the weather vane! It's so dramatic!
