I might be on theme with the animals inside the shell! (I'd have to ask a kid; they know everything!) I'm using my new macro lens 105mm 2.8 for these photos, and am hoping to get the focus and clarity much better. I used a tripod, used manual focus, turned off auto vibration, and used the timer. I know there're even things that have to do with how the shutter opens and closes that can affect movement and sharpness with macro, but I'll figure that out another day.
I shot these in manual mode, RAW, custom white balance, and ISO 200. The first one is at f/32, ss: 8".
The second one is also at f/32,but ss: 6".
This last once was also at f/32, but shutter speed: 2.5". I put this one in a sunnier spot on my couch and included it here because of the effect of the light coming through it. Actually, the REAL reason I included it was because I was impressed that you could see the DUST on it! So then I blew the dust off and took the above photos! :)
Sorry, folks. I'm crawling back in bed after I post this. I want everyone to know how much I appreciate their comments. I had no idea that people would like Buffalo so much! Thanks also for the suggestion to check out Pioneer Woman's blog. I've never heard of it and will be checking it out soon! I'll try to be back up and commenting on photos again by tomorrow, hopefully.
