Giveaway: 3 Easy Macro Lenses


Those of you who follow me on Instagram know I am a big fan of the Easy Macro Lens! It has been a fantastic way to get up close and examine the little details of nature and has opened up whole new worlds for our nature study.


  For us, it basically acts as a portable microscope allowing us to meet nature right where it is instead of bringing it in to our bigger microscopes indoors, which is not always possible. And as a bonus, we can take photos and record video with it to easily share with others and add to our online nature journals. Perfect! As a huge bonus, it is super easy to use and does not require me to remove my phone case. It is simply a band with a little lens. So simple! I love simple!


  The amazing folks over at Easy Macro have given us THREE lenses to give away to readers! So fun!

    I know we would spend a lot of time looking at snow. We don’t have a phone, but I was excited to see that it will work with a tablet. We would likely use it as a microscope. How fun!

  • jennifer Fraunfelder November 28, 2016, 5:01 am

    wesome gdget. would love to use it as a microscope with my girls for bsckyard science.

    I love macro photography. It opens an entirely different world.

  • Emily November 28, 2016, 7:23 am

    It’s amazing to see what is often times missed until you can really focus up close. I would love to see the intricate details in snow flakes and insects, especially as I have not been able to with the equipment I currently use. It would be a fun tool to show my 5 year old son, who is constantly fascinated with nature.

  • Becky D November 28, 2016, 7:44 am

    Love to win one! Thx for the chance!

  • Hildy November 28, 2016, 8:03 am

  • Georgia Monroe November 28, 2016, 8:14 am

    Everywhere!!! Would love to get closer photos of flowers, trees, bugs. I love making handmade cards with my photos and this lens would be so handy!

  • Melissa November 28, 2016, 8:26 am

    We would use it for nature study. My oldest, in particular, would benefit as he’s been interested in and experimenting with different types of camera and sound recordings.

  • Dara November 28, 2016, 8:40 am

    This would be fun for my children and K students!

  • Sarah M November 28, 2016, 10:48 am

    I think the real question is …How would I not use the Macro Lens! What a great handy tool to have! I can see the boys and I using this on our nature hikes, studies and activities as well as pretty much having this on us at all times to perform spur of the moment examinations of things we come across in daily life. Seeing things up close, brings a whole new perspective! Thanks guys!
