Or not as the case may be.
Jude’s theme this month is macro and I hoped to take some photos yesterday but the weather was dire. I’ve tried again on my way and when I got home from work. It was breezy, that’s my excuse anyway!
I wonder if you can tell which are phone shots and which are DSLR?

I think the first 2 are phone shots Gilly and just like the last two they are stunning! I love the little owl. Simply gorgeous! Great take on the challenge! 😀 ♥
Great images … 🙂
Not sure but they’re all great shots.
Love your excuses, Gilly!
All colourful shots. I think the first 3 are dslr and the last one is the phone!!!
Oops they have swapped positions when I posted the above comment, now that is tricky!!! Anyway I think the pale green euphorbias are the phone and the other 3 DSLR
How clever is that, they have swapped again. Did you programme that or is it a new thingy in the engine room from the happiness engineers!!! (they are always fiddling with things!!!)
Maybe Gilly uses the random setting so they change all the time? And I cheated as the properties are included on the shots if you scroll through the gallery. In actual fact there is little in the quality at this level. I suspect the difference comes if you want to enlarge or print the ones from the phone.
Went back for a look and I was right in 2 out of the 4. Amazing how well camera phones are now. I don’t have a good modern phone mine is almost a dinosaur in the phone world, about 5 years old, and the camera is only 2 megapixel…
Mine was even older and the photos dire, but my new one seems to do OK. Still prefer a proper camera though.
I prefer the camera that is why I haven’t uodated the phone. I am tempted sometimes when I see the lovely pictures people post that they have taken with the phone. And it is always with you…
Orange Glow seems to be from a DSLR. Can’t really say about the others. But they are all equally beautiful Gilly.
Gorgeous images Gilly. I hope you get some sunny days this month to seek out more for me 🙂
Well, I followed Jude’s lead and cheated, but otherwise I wouldn’t have known. All beautiful.
What are those intricate green things? I love them. And guess what? They’re euphorbia. I read the fine print. I took a swag with my iPhone the other day and they were all awful – blurry as all get-out. Yours are superb. And I’ll pass on guessing (or cheating.)
I’m afraid I cheated like Jude. Your Canon shots really have the edge over the iPhone. Love the vibrance of the Mahonia and that owl between the ‘flower pot men’ is adorable. 🙂
What a pack of cheats! I got them all wrong except one (the euphorbia 🙂 ) but I love them all so it doesn’t matter.
I think macro is in the air. I was looking at some lovely shots the other day by someone whose name I forget, and thinking it is about time I go out with my camera and get up close and personal with some plants. It’s fun, isn’t it.
Definitely a good idea, I look forward to seeing your photos ☺
No pressure then!
Beautiful macro photos!
I missed you recent posts… So glad I’m catching up. 🙂
So full of Spring hope Gilly💕
