Tag Archives: Small Red Damselfly

Macro photography

The sun has been shining and the weather has started to warm up so I’ve been spending as much time as I can in the garden.  We’ve just bought some new garden furniture and it has been so nice to just chill out in the sunshine.

Sitting outside on Friday we noticed a damselfly flitting from plant to plant so I grabbed my camera and took a few photos.  Although I have had my macro lens for a while I haven’t really used it but now I think I’m hooked.

It is so thrilling to be able to see things in such detail.

Look at it’s little face :)

Next to cross my path was a little Beetle.

I’m trying to learn as much as I can about different types of photography by reading articles in magazines and online, but sometimes just getting out there and practising is the best way.  It’s more enjoyable anyway :)
