A Macro View

Last week I splurged and spent $19 on a macro lens for my iPhone. I figured that it would be an inexpensive way to begin experimenting with close up photos of my Monarch caterpillars. I’ve played around with the lens a bit with various results. Once clipping the lens on, you have to get right on top of the subject to get the focus right. Between the breeze, a less than steady hand, and bees that won’t sit still, it’s a little challenging to find good subjects. The slow moving caterpillars are more my speed.
