Discovering the mountain with a magnifying glass

You can also explore the mountain with a magnifying glass and make photos of your discoveries.
It’s simple and inexpensive!

You can use any kind of standard digital camera.
Just hold the magnifying glass (2.5x magnification or more) in front of the lens.
Look at the camera screen, and move the camera back and forth to get your subject into focus.
Take lots of pictures of the same subject to be sure that the picture is clear.

If you want, you can use a more powerful magnifying glass to photograph smaller details (the insides of flowers, pollen, parts of insects).

Have fun exploring!
