EN: Quick little bugger - I think I need to setup a tripod and capture a few more arrivals and departures at the busy "airport" in my backyard.

DE: Flinke kleine Vicher - Ich glaube ich muss mal das Stativ aufstellen und ein paar mehr Bilder der An- und Abflüge am hektischen "Flughafen" im Hinterhof machen.

EN: Chinese Pond Turtle up close. She was kind enough to hold still after she received food. No flash needed, just the soft light of the EF-M Macro.

DE: Chinesische Dreikielschildkröte Close-Up. Sie war nach dem Essen zutraulich genug und hielt still. Alles ohne Blitz, nur das softe Einstelllicht des EF-M Makros.

EN: Ever wondered what the seeds of a bell pepper look up close? Wonder no more, as I just put a bunch of them in front of my macro lens. This was shot with the Canon EOS M3 and the Canon EF-M 28mm F3.5 Macro IS STM and a 16mm extension tube in Super-Macro-Mode. Lit with the integrated LED-light of the lens from the left. The seeds are one 2-3mm tall, so yes, the magnification is quite good. And with auto focus in tow my Canon MP-E 65mm F2.8 1-5x lens got replaced for the ease of use alone.

DE: Habt Ihr euch je gefragt wie die Samen einer Paprika aus der Nähe aussehen? Hier die Antwort, da ich sie gerade eben vor mein Makroobjektiv gelegt habe. Die Aufnahmen enstanden mit einer Canon EOS M3 und dem Canon EF-M 28mm F3.5 Makro IS STM samt 16mm Zwischenring im Super-Makro-Modus. Ausgeleuchtet mit dem integrierten LED-Licht des Objektivs von Links. Die Samen sind nur 2-3mm hoch, so ja, die Vergrößerung ist beachtlich. Und dank Autofokus wurde mein Canon MP-E 65mm F2.8 1-5x allein wegen der einfacheren Bedienung abgelöst.

EN: After the recent influx of subscribers I felt challenged to upload something new and experiment a little while I'm at it. So here's a close up of a dandelion shot with Canon EF 16-35mm F4L IS USM and a 25mm extension tube. First time I tried that combination and I think it turned out pretty well. Don't you think?

DE: Nach dem kürzlichen Zuwachs an Abonenten fühlte ich mich herausgefordert etwas neues hochzuladen und gleichzeitig etwas zu experimentieren. Hier das Ergebnis: Löwenzahn-Nahaufnahme mit dem Canon EF 16-35mm F4L IS USM und einem 25mm Zwischenring. Das erste mal das ich diese Kombination ausprobiert habe. Und ich finde es kam gut raus. Was denkt Ihr?

Or MP-E ... at 65mm and F2.8. I'll let you guess what I used as a subject here. All I can tell you that aside from my macro album lens scratchers (http://goo.gl/Qb0lU) which stops at a scale of 1:1 the pictures in this album will start at 1:1 and will go all the way up to 5:1 which is the highest magnification of the Canon MP-E 65mm F2.8 1-5x. 

Shot with a Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the Canon MP-E 65mm F2.8 1-5x as well as the Canon MR-14EX at a magnification of 4 with ISO 400, F10 and a shutter speed of 1/200th of a second. Flash exposure compensation -1⅓ and a ratio of 1:8 at a 45 degree counter clockwise angle ... that should cover it.

Soldering Smoke

This week's theme within a theme for #macromonday is warm, which I might have missed by a few degrees. But getting a photo done and adding a bit smoke photography experimentation into the mix was too big a chance to give up. So here's a closeup of a soldering iron, forming a Sn70Pb18In12 droplet.

+Macro Monday is curated by +Kerry Murphy and +Kelli Seeger Kim this week.

Shot with a Canon EOS 60D and the Canon EF 100mm Macro F2.8L IS USM @ ISO100, F8, and 1/60th of a second with a Canon Speedlight 430EX II standing to the far left. Straight from the sensor, but cropped and re-sized down to the 2048px width Google+ uses before upload.

Seedling Sunburst

I just hope, somebody who has a better way with words than me, has written a poem or haiku about a sunburst, otherwise I missed this week's #macromonday theme within a theme "inspired by poetry" and just shot a plain old macro.

+Macro Monday is curated by +Kerry Murphy+Jennifer Eden and +Kelli Seeger Kim.

Shot with a Canon EOS 60D and the Canon EF 100mm Macro F2.8L IS USM @ ISO200, F5.6, and a shutter speed of 1/60th of a second. With a Canon 430EX II firing in slave mode from the bottom left.

Hangout

Not on Google, but in our front yard. This rather little fella decided to put a multi layered net up in between some fading spires, so every shiny string you see is his.

Shot for this weeks #macormonday 's subtheme Autumn with a Canon EOS 60D and the Canon EF 100mm Macro F2.8L IS USM @ ISO100. F8 and a shutter speed of 1/200th of a second.

F2.9

No, I didn't miss the eight key. The 50mm lens on this 1963 built EXA I has that aperture. And since this week's Macro Monday theme is "F4 or wider" my camera settings and its analog subject both fall into that category. And yes, there is a film in it, a black and white one to be exa-ct, and it still takes pictures through the top down viewfinder, like it did almost half a century ago.

+Macro Monday is curated by +Kerry Murphy+Jennifer Eden and +Kelli Seeger Kim.

Shot with a Canon EOS 60D in black and white, using a Canon EF 100mm Macro F2.8L IS USM @ F2.8, ISO 400 at 1/60th of a second and a Canon 430EX II to get the highlights on the all metal construction just right. For an easier angle setup I used a tripod for both the EOS and the EXA.

You never know how much surface detail your lunch has, until you point a macro lens at it, which is something I did today for this week's food themed Macro Monday.

+Macro Monday is curated by +Kerry Murphy, +Jennifer Eden and +Kelli Seeger Kim

Shot with a Canon EOS 60D and the Canon EF 100mm Macro F2.8 IS USM @ ISO400, F10 and a shutter speed of 1/60th of a second. With the Canon MR-14EX providing two flashes from the left and right at a ration of 4:1 and corrected by -1EV.
