Until recently I found close ups tricky with my cheapy compact camera but I have been exploring some of the functions lately and I discovered the macro and macro zoom so I can now take real close ups! I have tried a few flowers and got some quite good results and then I thought I'd have a try at a close up on a chicken. I have tried this before in a previous Gallery on Eyes - the result was pretty spectacular (I think anyway!). So this time it's a chicken's feathers - here you are chicken feathers close up. Quite cool I think!
