I thought that I can't be the only one who struggled to pick just one photo from all of mine for the Macro Challenge, so thought people might be interested in a thread to share future kick ass extreme closeup macro shots!

(Links: Large Image  Ridiculously Large Image)

Both shot with my Canon Powershot A95 (which isn't an SLR, just a nice point'n'shoot!), more pics from the same set here - my garden's in full bloom with some unexpected flowers & plenty of weeds at the moment, so I decided to get out and take some pics.

Anyone else got some macro shots they want to share?

PurpleHeather, your links aren't working. You've got an extra 'http://' in there. Wink

Love the first pic! What kind of flower is that?

Wow, those are some gorgeous flower pics!  Here is one of my clematis:

and about 3/4 inch of ice on a rose hip from our storm this past December:

For the record, I could add a whole lot more, lol. Wink

daina - thanks!  I love getting up close to things and trying to find the beautiful bits.

SarahsALoser - love the texture on those petals

DIY ho - thanks for letting me know - I think it's that I keep putting them in ""s as I'm used to doing HTML!  Mended now Cheesy

The flower is actually a forget me not - I got really close & managed to do the fab focus - really happy with that image.

landofoz - loving the shadows on your clematis, and that ice is such a great pic - looks like I could reach out & touch it.

sookie74 - hello, please do share more, I love looking at people's detailed shots!  Love the lighting in your railroad shot - very evocative, and your dog's a cutie.

pinokeeo - would love to see some of your pics!

Ooh, talking about things being beautiful, here's one of my favourite macro shots, I think it's beautiful in a not so conventional way:

Sweet photos everyone! I had a tough time picking the right picture too.. here are a couple I thought about entering.. (I'm not sure if some of them really qualify as macro but hey) Tongue

My little niece, Claire, I think she was getting sick of having a camera in her face all day. Cheesy

Apple blossoms from last year.

Some of my paint brushes.

A calf skull. This one freaks some people out, but I like it.

Hehe, sorry for so many! Keep the pictures comin' folks! Cheesy

Thank you Tallberggoesint! Smiley I use a Canon Powershot S3 IS. It's just a point-and-shoot, but it has a really awesome macro feature.

I love crochet!

I just took these tonight because I was going outside, my house is sweltering. I've been meaning to take pictures of our new flowers and it seemed to be the perfect time, because we have bad storms and tornadoes heading towards us and the flowers will probably be getting lots of abuse. I liked taking these in the dark because you can see the flowers so well and the background is so black, also I took some pictures of our little baby apricots! Plus I had to add a picture of my cat, just because!
