A bit of Macro Photography

At this time of year bird photography becomes a little quiet and so out comes the macro lens.  I don't usually go out with the intention of photographing anything specific, it's more of a case of whatever I come across, I only really dabble as macro photography is an art in itself. Here are a few of my recent attempts.

Whilst photographing the Jays I have had a pair of Magpies coming in to feed, I think their beauty is quite overlooked as they are not the most popular of birds. I'm posting a few shots here to try and show how striking they actually are.

Young Jays

As I mentioned in my last post, I have been trying to photograph the young Jays in my garden. It has been quite a job as they seem to prefer to hang off the fatball feeders than go for the easier photogenic option of peanuts on a log, paired with the poor weather over the last month, getting them in the right spot with the sun out hasn't been easy. One plus point is that they seem slow to mature and still look like juveniles.

Here's some of the best shots so far starting off with an adult for comparison.
