MONDAY is MACRO day: Week 9: A Cat and a Squirrel.

Who ate all the birdseed then?

I love Macro photography but it doesn’t always have to be about showing tiny insects in great detail – although 99% of my macros do just that!

For this week’s MONDAY MACRO I’ve chosen two pictures of small animals, both of which were taken with my macro lens.

I saw this squirrel feasting on a bird table when I was looking for blue butterflies in Mere Sands Wood:

And since the Macro lens was still on the camera when I got home I snapped Misty having a snooze:
