I took this when I was still using slide film and so it is quite old, but I thought it might be interesting.....

Interesting textures on a chunk of anatomy we don't see very often!

Now that I actually see this one, Joan, I'm inclined to think it's a bit outside our usual bounds for "closeup". But I'm not hard over about that, and it's helpful from time to time to have something that pushes the boundaries just so we can talk about where they are. Confused

Let's leave it up and see what the other folks think.

Thanks for the PM, and for the post!

Thanks Rik, as I said it is just something different. Not too many people get to see this so close. Smile

Shocked

I would rather stay close to my mantises. Laughing
Very nice details on that kitty Joan. Cool

Thanks Nikola. I guess mantis are a lot safer than this lion, but then I had so much fun taking this pic. Very Happy

It's nicer to see such equipment when you friend is bored. I would hate to see such a sight when he was expressing extreme interest. Have a Happy New Year, Joan.

Look at those beautiful canines Shocked An excellent photo Joan. I am going to have to say that it is not a closeup-close-up like we usually have here. I mean if it wasn`t a beautiful animal photo and was a human head or baby photo, it would not fit as a closeup IMO. It is debatable (did I spell that right) Wink

Thanks Doug and Irwin. I was not sure of posting it as the line of close-ups is a bit hazy so I checked with Rik on it before I did. Smile

Yippee -- I got it right!! Very Happy Laughing

What I wrote to Joan was this:

About the lion... There's no precise definition about where the cutoff is between close-up and no-no, but generally we've seen it someplace around 6" frame width and no cute babies. A lion's eye or lion's tooth filling the frame would be very interesting, but a picture showing both of them at once would probably be better someplace else.

Still, let's leave the photo up for discussion. It's good to talk about these things once in a while.
