Macrophotography / Microphotography of Birds
Macrophotography provides us with an amazing and wonderful way to enjoy the incredible world we live in. Not only does macrophotography enable us to see a world that we would normally miss, it provides us the leisure to do so. Wild birds are not prone to sitting still for us to get up close and personal. But through the use of macrophotography we are given the time we need to study our feathered friends and all of their glorious details.
(Note: Clicking on most images will allow you to view a larger version of that image.)
Please come and journey with me through the macrophotographic world of birds.
Birds have many different and interesting features for us to study. Without the use of macrophotography, we would have never seen the details of the feathery hair-type features that surround the hard beak of the hawk above. The contrast between the hard and soft would be lost to us without an image such as this.
This picture allows us to see the powerful pointed beak with which the hawk, and all birds of prey, rip the flesh from their victims.
That is what macrophotography does! It almost magically brings so many details to our attention - details that we would have missed. We are given time to study and enjoy the details of their feathers, their beaks or bills, their feet, and so many other features.
As you view the different images of the birds below, take special note of how you are able to observe individual feathers. Notice the colors of the feathers and how they blend together to give the birds their color.
Look at the bills and beaks of these birds. Each one is so different. It is easy to see how the different beaks can be used to accomplish different types of feeding habits, from cracking seeds open to acting as a sieve in the water.
These images also provide you with close-ups of birds' eyes. Notice the different colors and shapes.
Through the use of macrophotography, tiny details that may have been previously overlooked can now be viewed with amazing clarity.
Through the macrophotography of birds, we journeyed together and viewed our feathered friends up close and personal. Macrophotography allows us to see birds in ways that would otherwise have been impossible. We have been able to enjoy the exquisite beauty of them without worrying about whether we will frighten them away before we are finished admiring. Too many times they have flown away before we have had the opportunity to partake fully of the splendor they have to offer.
