Hi everyone,

There are 3 new images on my Flickr site:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/12801949@N02/?saved=1

Two are macromosaics, one is a single frame macro.
All comments and suggestions for improvement are welcome.

Greg

Did you capture the "Pussywillow macro 1 frame" freehand?
What do you think of diffraction at F/32?

Yes the single frame pussywillow was freehand (so was the mosaic).

Diffraction at f#32 is unacceptable for butterfly wings, the scales lose sharpness. For meso/macrostructures diffraction is not an issue.

I went on over to your flickr site, and oh, my some great shots there...
Was wondering if you might post that picture you call highlander? The one of that Bull? I wanna see what he looks like here, I wonder if I could rope that sucker without gettin me OR my pony killed...he looks pretty mean, and pretty big...ugh...wishful thinking on my part I think..He looks cranky.

Gorgeous. Just gorgeous.

A two frame shot of a living creature? Impressive!

Is the Bull that we see from one image or was he stitched together?

Thank you Patti & Gordon. I love the Highland cattle (I call them Highlanders) - so huge, such massive horns - but very gentle! They don't let them loose in large numbers over the Forest until a bit later in the year - so I was lucky to get these youngsters that were foraging.

Yes Gordon - it's a two-framer - he saw he was getting his picture taken and posed for me :)

Patti, here's an experiment. Trying to see if this ties in with Image Shack. If it all screws up, please delete (Admin).

Best,
