Macro challenge: Pets up close

March 21st, 2007, 05:17 PM
Break out the macros! Add your super close-ups of your pets (or even non-pet animals and living things)... :)

Some noses I took today..
Jemma nose

Boo nose...

I really like this one.. :o The depth of field line is right through the middle of his nose...

March 21st, 2007, 06:15 PM
neat pics Prin. I'm sitting here looking so very closely at your dogs' noses and I'm struck with how strange dog noses are, so leathery looking and curly and textured. Weird.

I'll see if I can get some Angus and Finn close ups to add. Maybe we can do a comparative study of cat and dog noses.

March 21st, 2007, 06:26 PM
I got a Cassie eye. I love her white eyelashes:cloud9: :o

March 21st, 2007, 06:34 PM
awww Cassie :lovestruck: Have you noticed ? Jemma has a flower on her nose ? Little lighter pigments , looks like a flower !

March 21st, 2007, 06:42 PM
lol Frenchy, most people say it's a paw.:D

Cassie is adorable. It's cool how her upper lashes are blond...

March 21st, 2007, 06:47 PM

I think it looks more like a flower :shrug:

March 21st, 2007, 06:49 PM
I love the close-up noses. :cloud9: And, I never noticed Cassie's white eyelashes cute. :lovestruck:

March 21st, 2007, 06:57 PM

Hey, I was just going to say that! Looks like a flower to me too. She has another little scar there too. I like the second Boo nose too, it's really neat.

I'm afraid I won't be able to get any super-macros, Willow won't stay still enough for that.

March 21st, 2007, 07:33 PM
Great noses and eyelashes! I know this first one is a little blurry but I love it.

And I love this one of Roscoe.

And I can't leave Otie out.

March 21st, 2007, 07:36 PM
A couple of more.

A good one of Otis

And in honor of Sasha who is LOVING her new only dog household. She growled at their teenage daughter's boyfriend when he hugged her. hehe good dog

March 21st, 2007, 07:39 PM
Give Mileva a kiss for me :cloud9: and of course, a cookie for Roscoe , but you already knew that :p

March 21st, 2007, 07:42 PM
Give Mileva a kiss for me :cloud9: and of course, a cookie for Roscoe , but you already knew that :p

When she lays on the couch like that I crawl over to her and kiss and kiss her little nose. She just lays there just like that, eyes closed. Doesn't even flinch. :cloud9:

March 21st, 2007, 07:46 PM
I love to cudle with my fuzzbutts on the couch :cloud9:

March 21st, 2007, 08:42 PM
YAY!! I love Macro shots! Good pics everyone!

Here are two oldies (I'll have to take some new ones....)

March 21st, 2007, 08:56 PM
I knew I had a nose one somewhere....

March 21st, 2007, 10:22 PM
AWwww Meb, I loooove his lips! I bet he gets kissed on them allll the time. :cloud9:

March 21st, 2007, 10:31 PM
These are great!

Love that one of Roscoe.. :lovestruck: :lovestruck:

March 21st, 2007, 11:21 PM
Hmmm, I don't use macro that much on anything but fish.
(Click for bigger) (

This one is ok. It's a flower from a plant in one of my aquariums. (
Angry betta (
Corydoras catfish (

I guess I'll have to go use macro on something other than fish now :laughing:

Ok, this one is pretty closeup anyway, though I can't remember whether I used macro or not. (

March 21st, 2007, 11:48 PM
Bunny eye. (

Closeup of Bender. (

March 22nd, 2007, 03:21 PM

March 22nd, 2007, 03:42 PM
These are the 2 I posted on a different thread somewhere. I love these.

March 22nd, 2007, 03:44 PM
Here are a couple more

March 22nd, 2007, 04:54 PM
Maybe these aren't macro enough?

March 22nd, 2007, 07:15 PM
Old ones but thats all I could find for now:

MoJo's nose:

A MoJo Gaze:

March 22nd, 2007, 07:36 PM
Ali, your Josie looks a lot like my Otis. I :love: orange tabby kitties. :cloud9:

March 22nd, 2007, 09:18 PM
my nose attempt of beathoven.

March 22nd, 2007, 09:26 PM
That's too cute Wdawson, he's in the "kiss my nose" position :cloud9:

March 22nd, 2007, 10:02 PM
Cute pics!!! :cloud9:

I sooo love Josie.. :lovestruck:

March 22nd, 2007, 10:09 PM
lol! all awsome pics!!! i will start harassing Roland for a macro pic tomorrow!!!

March 22nd, 2007, 10:33 PM
Everyone's photos are fantastic, what a great idea Prin! I couldn't resist trying (I still haven't read the instructions manual and I've had the camera for 2 years now). First, Lucky. He kept running away everytime I pointed the camera at him until I held a piece of chicken next to it. Next is Penny who I thought would eat the chicken and the camera.

March 23rd, 2007, 07:46 AM
Not really a macro shot but a close up of Lucy (with her intense look happening).

March 23rd, 2007, 09:25 AM



March 23rd, 2007, 09:56 AM
Well, I haven't yet found the time to figure out my camera, so I'm hoping a blurry closeup or three will suffice :rolleyes: Declan and Ceili.



March 23rd, 2007, 10:11 AM
And Bridie...

March 23rd, 2007, 10:23 AM
this is about as close as i can get!!!

March 23rd, 2007, 10:24 AM
and one more...

March 23rd, 2007, 10:33 AM
Declan's "Shnozz in a Blizzard"


March 23rd, 2007, 12:10 PM
He wishes you all a good day. Smile!

March 24th, 2007, 08:19 AM
Not sure what a macro is???? But here is a shot of Buster "behind bars"....

March 24th, 2007, 12:42 PM
Awesome pictures everyone. They are all so "kissably" close :lovestruck: .

March 25th, 2007, 12:46 AM
Really great pics the closeups. :cloud9:

March 25th, 2007, 01:39 AM
I never used to be able to take close-up pictures since they were just blurry, but I just got a new camera so now I can :D.

Mocha and Cannelle have gone to bed, so poor unsuspecting Panna, sleeping peacefully in her bed, was my only target...

A pink little nose!

And a paw!

March 25th, 2007, 01:51 AM
Awesome shots :thumbs up ....that nose is so close it even feels wet. :D

March 25th, 2007, 12:54 PM
hehe, it does!!! :D

These are so awesome!

Dogastrophe, I love Lucy's teeth.:D

Rolandsmom, that paw pic is amazing. So cute!

They're all so great.:cloud9: :cloud9: :cloud9:

Oh, btw, HarleyBuster- macro is just really, really close up shots. Usually there'll be a setting on your camera for it (sometimes it's a flower?).:)

March 26th, 2007, 05:16 AM
Great photos everyone. I must remember to add some of mine when I get home this morning. Looking at pet pics at work makes me miss my fur-baby.

March 26th, 2007, 08:57 AM
hehe Currie and Brandy, these are all great!

March 26th, 2007, 09:00 AM
and one of Emma

March 26th, 2007, 09:26 AM
Emma is so pretty:cloud9:

March 26th, 2007, 09:56 AM
thank you for the compliment, here she is eating a bowl of cornpops :laughing:

March 26th, 2007, 09:59 AM

March 26th, 2007, 05:09 PM

Awesome pix everyone!

So now while I am saving up for a wide angle lens, I see these great macro shots...and now I need to save for macro lens... gotta save more :2cents: :2cents: :2cents: :2cents: :2cents:

March 29th, 2007, 12:15 PM
It's as close as I can get with my 1 lens. If you look closely you can see the camera reflecting in Zig's eye.

March 29th, 2007, 12:52 PM
Oh I love that pic Marko. I love how blue Zig's eyes are:cloud9:

March 29th, 2007, 01:16 PM
Me too! He's adorable. :lovestruck: And yeah, you can see the camera in his eye, and that you took the pic.:D

I don't have a macro lens either... Just the one lens and a funky function on the camera.:o

March 29th, 2007, 05:10 PM
Great pics everyone!

Here are a couple of older nose photos of Toby and then-foster dog Beauty.

March 29th, 2007, 05:22 PM
...and here is a close up of our dear old Griffey (may he rest his weary bones in peace) :lovestruck:

March 29th, 2007, 08:03 PM
awww TMac, they're beautiful :cloud9:

Marko , Zig is stunning !

March 29th, 2007, 08:03 PM
hehehe... I love her eyes!
I hope that I have this attachment thing figured out.
I need to learn to use my new digital camera. It's a canonA620 and I am not sure how to take macros.

March 29th, 2007, 08:09 PM
I hope that I have this attachment thing figured out.

You got it ! :thumbs up Nice eye.

March 29th, 2007, 11:41 PM
Kocela, awesome pic of Moe. :lovestruck:

Marko, I looove Ziglet's eyes. :cloud9:

TMac, your dogs are sooo relaxed. :cloud9:

My Tabby-boy...Rocky.

March 30th, 2007, 07:51 PM
Chico, you have beautiful cats!

I love all these pet photos I've been looking at. So many beautiful animals! I have the feeling that I am going to be taking a lot more photos, too... ;)

March 30th, 2007, 07:54 PM
Some pics my brother took of the boys.

March 30th, 2007, 11:43 PM
Frenchy, those are awesome pics of the boys :cloud9: .

March 31st, 2007, 02:03 PM
I was the step mom to three wonderful pet rats for about 6 months. They have gone back to their other human mom now. But I have this great macro of the hairless rats face.

Rebel, the rat. She has tiny tiny hairs on her face.

March 31st, 2007, 02:35 PM
Another couple of Harley and Buster....Harley's a little fuzzy but you can get the idea that he needs braces!!!!

April 1st, 2007, 01:39 AM

Rebel, the rat. She has tiny tiny hairs on her face.

My mom would have a heart attack if she saw this pic ! :laughing:

April 1st, 2007, 07:15 AM
Frenchy:laughing: it's just a wee little rat:love:

April 1st, 2007, 10:56 AM
My mom would have a heart attack if she saw this pic ! :laughing:

Ha ha, as would mine. People hated to come over because I would take them out of their cage and let them run around the room. They were of course potty trained.

April 2nd, 2007, 01:01 AM
Aww, that ratty is adorable! I've never seen a hairless one. :cloud9:

April 2nd, 2007, 01:01 AM
Great pics, Frenchy!

Love Harley's underbite too! :D

April 2nd, 2007, 12:42 PM
Some pics my brother took of the boys.

oh my gosh, Frenchy! Those are soooo sweet! I love the second one - he looks so peaceful! :lovestruck:

April 2nd, 2007, 05:16 PM
Thanks everyone , whenever you see good pictures of my dogs, it's my brother's work :laughing: And about rats, hummm, don't know, I still freak out when I see a field mouse ! And my mom just freaks seing rats on tv (so I made her watch Willard :evil: ) :laughing: Altough I did have a white rat when I was a teenager :shrug: But once I close the cage door on his paw (accident) and he hated me from then on ! (he wasn't injured, the door wasn't close all the way)

April 2nd, 2007, 06:33 PM
Chico, great pics of the kitties. :lovestruck: I especially love the one of Rocky. :cloud9:

Frenchy, awesome pics of the boys. :lovestruck:

HarleyBuster, cute pics....I love the little underbite too. :lovestruck:

lt_danish, I'm with Frenchy on the rats.....they give me the willies. :o

April 2nd, 2007, 06:39 PM

April 2nd, 2007, 09:08 PM
Oh I love that picture of Layla!

:offtopic: Yeah, the rats really freaked me out when they first came to live with me. Then I realized they all had different personalities and could be trained (brain-washed) to do tricks. They would even come to when I called them to their individual names.

April 3rd, 2007, 10:11 AM
As ready for his close up as he'll ever get.

April 3rd, 2007, 03:27 PM
This may take some time, but here goes.
First Eyes, Missy:
and Riley

April 3rd, 2007, 03:32 PM
Missy's tounge
And Riley's chin
I had to shrink the photo's by 80% or they wouldn't load, but at full res you could take a small square and is would be so detailed it was freaky. Still playing with the settings though.

April 4th, 2007, 09:48 PM
Puppyluv, that's an awesome shot of Layla. :lovestruck:

Athenamor, good nose shot. :)

x.l.r.8, that's one hairy chin and love the tongue. :D

April 5th, 2007, 02:00 AM
Thank you for placing *Macros* as a topic. You had me grabbing my user's manual to figure out how to do it with my digital camera! Many neat pictures as well. Thanks again!

April 5th, 2007, 11:12 PM
Ok,I have to ask, Kyra, what the hey is that second photo of???:confused:

April 6th, 2007, 12:26 AM
Puppyluv, I love that pic of Layla! :cloud9:

x.l.r.8, great pics! I love the eyes best.:)

athenamor, for some reason your pic makes me dizzy.:D I love his ears.:cloud9:

April 6th, 2007, 06:28 PM
Ok,I have to ask, Kyra, what the hey is that second photo of???:confused:

Sorry I had put it into the title, but not the comments. It is inside/outside the ear.

April 7th, 2007, 11:43 PM
Kyra, I love the nose shot. :cloud9:

April 24th, 2007, 08:51 AM
This is as close up as I got before he left us. He wasn't very fond of having his picture taken


April 25th, 2007, 05:39 PM

April 27th, 2007, 01:26 PM
He was gorgeous. :cloud9: :candle:

April 28th, 2007, 01:11 PM
Peaches out on the balcony, surveying her domain :cloud9:

Simon's knows camera = cookie, so he sits like a lil Pointerlicious statue! :cloud9:

April 28th, 2007, 10:13 PM
Simon would get a big kiss on the nose from me before he could get his cookie :cloud9:

April 29th, 2007, 02:09 PM
I have missed all these new pics. They are all great:cloud9:

Here are a couple that I took this weekend:



April 29th, 2007, 02:21 PM

April 29th, 2007, 02:47 PM
Cassie ! :lovestruck: :cloud9: love Hunter too ! (don't want to make him feel left out :p )

April 29th, 2007, 04:11 PM
I'm a new member but thought it would be alright to just jump in I hope!

Here's a macro of my Noid, albeit not that flattering to him

April 29th, 2007, 04:16 PM
I have a much nicer macro of my baby girl Niya

And just have to say that rat is just adorable :lovestruck: but then I am a sucker for anything bald :)
