Grasshopper, Alstroemeria and Chaffinch

16 Jul

This week’s Photo Challenge is Detail which suits me very well. Here are today’s three beautiful things in close up, showing detail. First a Field Grasshopper. I love his armour plating.



Alstroemeria light up in the sunshine and have beautiful markings.



This young bird has a crest as he flies in and lands but would not stay still enough for me to catch it.  His youth shows in the fluffy detail around the edges.

    You have a good eye for detail and an ability to capture it in photos. Are you using a digital SLR? I’m still struggling with macros.🤔

    Lovely shots – I especially loved the grasshopper – it looks like you’ve captured a shot of a giant creature from a Lewis Carroll film set 😀
