Iridescence

Peacock Feather MacroThe macro world fascinates me. I recently saw a video of an amateur photographer who has developed a method of macro photography using microscopes and software that stitches together multiple images — each with an incredibly narrow depth of field — to create almost impossibly detailed images of insects and other tiny objects. I don’t have the equipment (or the patience) for that at present, but I still love exploring things too small for us to notice at first glance. Like the details within this peacock feather. Not only the amazing iridescent colors, but the intricate arrangement of hair-like feather bits that make up the feather. (1/160 sec., f/11, ISO 200, 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens with macro diopter)
