Macro challenge: Pets up close

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.. The depth of field line is right through the middle of his nose...

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.

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.

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.

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

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

Ziglet's close-up

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.

Me too! He's adorable. And yeah, you can see the camera in his eye, and that you took the pic.

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

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.

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.
