It’s not literally a Macro shot but a close up from the telephoto, of some recent bird-feeder visitors. I caught sight of these yellow claws so zoomed in for a close up.
Oh man would I love a macro of these guys’ feathers! Beautiful, subtle iridescent colors!
I don’t know who they are…a dove or pigeon of some kind. Anyone?
Or this one…I collect the feathers of our local acrobatic flickers…so pretty.

what’s the difference between closeup and macro?
“Macro” refers to something large, where “micro” means small. … The camera lens you use is the real defining difference between close up and macro photography. Anyone can take a close-up picture, such as with a telephoto lens. But generally, macro photography can only be created with a macro lens
Just found this explanation. Those photos I took were with a telephoto lens. The beautiful flower pictures you take are probably macro, where you hold your phone right up close to the object.
hmmmm. Occasionally I hold the phone close to the object but I frequently zoom in as well. I do whatever it takes to get a clear picture. But only use an iPhone.
