💡💡💡 . Since you happened to see this post..I gather you might have an interest in macro-photographs. Unless IG algorithm are all wonky, (which they are to a large extent) you wld not have landed here! . I ask a simple question! It has foxed me many a times. . As an IGer who loves macro captures, how do you figure out the scale of a macro shot? 🤔 There are a few clues (time for some random gyan if you are interested 😂) ⚬ 1-Look for reference objects, the size of which you are familiar with. It is fairly easy from that point onwards. ⚬ 2-For water droplets shots/captures pl undertsand that their size can vary..(from less than 0.1mm in dia to maybe up to 5mm) ⚬ 3-Remember, the more spherical the drop, the smaller it is in size (simple surface tension rule) ⚬ 4-Larger drops tend to sag at the periphery, and one can see many more details through them. ⚬ 5-Smaller drops, esp dew drops tend to reflect the surroundings more if they are against an opaque backdrop! 💦 Lots more to share, but I guess the attention span of most of us diminishes after the 5th bullet point 😂! ⚬ This shot is part of a 25mmx25mm miniature spider web loaded with dew drops, on Nilgiri Grass blades (often referred to as carpet grass). ⚬ It was captured early morning, the Sun had barely risen but was bright enough to light up the sky and the immediate surroundings, which are visible in the reflections. ⚬ The camera was pointing straight down, abt 100mm away from the web. (BTW-I have been told that I talk too much! 😂😂) _________________________________________________ #bns_macro#ig_divineshots#drops_creative#9vaga_drops9#total_drops#pocket_macro#macro_brilliance#ffmacro_members#ig_today#ig_great_pics#pocket_macro#tgif_macro#igglobalclubmacro#shotsofresh#absolute_shotz#drop_arts#pocket_allnature#magic_marvels#top_macro#stunning_shots#macro_creative_pictures#macro_perfection#vivo_macro#mat_macro#flowersandmacro#tph_insideother#weekly_macroshot
Did you know....? . Scientists have altered a living dragonfly so they can control its movements!
Called 'DragonflEye' It was created by genetically modifying regular dragonflies with "steering neurons" in the insect's spinal cord, which are light sensitive. Tiny, fiber-optic-like structures in the dragonfly's eyes send pulses of light to their brains, functionally controlling where the insect flies via remote control. (Text Source-Popular Mechanics)
