The moon was “Close-up” the other day.
Someway it inspired me to come up with this contribution to Scotts 12th assignment.
Yes. Now we’re close. I know we are, but it is hard to see without scale. Let me try this instead:
If you click on the image you’ll get a slightly larger version.
Some tech data: ISO-100 f/32 100mm 30sec
ISO-200, f/16, 6 sec
This is what I can resolve with My Canon 7D and 100mm MACRO 2.8L IS USM
There is also a little assignment to you my dear visitor. The task is to find out what ties these images together.
This is the connecting image. Pollen! I do not guarantee that it is from birch.
The assignment was close-up and this is a close look.
I had to get help to present this image of a single pollen.
The origin of the image is a scanning in an electron microscope. In this case a so called ESEM.
The volume of this pollen is 2 x 10^32 times smaller than the moon!
