This Shetland pony, who used to live with a few companions in a field a couple of hundred yards from our house, had a very docile temperament, although you’d never guess from this manic, wide-eyed stare.
This week, Sue has set us a specific theme for Macro Moments – ‘Birds’. It’s pretty difficult to get a true macro shot of a bird, I should imagine, so here is a (very) tightly-cropped image of an owl which I took at a display of birds of prey last summer.
Fortunately, I was using my best lens, so I think it has managed to retain enough detail, despite the crop.
Nikon D800 with Nikkor 70-200mm ƒ2.8 lens at 200mm. 1/500 at ƒ4, ISO 100. Cropped and edited in Lightroom.
