and why not,

No—this isn’t one of those ‘homilies’ filled with adenoidal angst and semi-sage advice. It’s a simple observation of how to make those wee snaps a little bigger. (Oxymoron? Hah—I’ve been called worse) (and by experts~!).
may well have been dreaming while Dawn’s left hand was in the sky—but he got up earlier than I do these days; anyway, I prefer to do my dreaming whilst sitting in Mooch café in town peering at a pair of distant eyes peering back at me.
Take a look below and you’ll catch my drift …
Okay, I used the opportunity to see what the full range of my few lenses might achieve. The above is the widest angle of my wee ‘all-purpose’ zoom — the one that I use at all times (and only sometimes begrudgingly swop for another).
Then I zoomed in—

No … I favour Olympus but my wee Canon can get me in a helluva lot closer. However, Miss Canon was at home and I wuz here … but all is never lost to a determined idiot; feast your eyes on this
—it still amazes me what can be achieved with a mediocre zoom and a several updates on an out-of-date* Macintosh computer.
You simply need to zoom in on your selected image (or bit thereof) and screenshot** the part you want. Easy-peasey~!
* I’ll never (! ! !) update my Operating System again (since that time Apple ‘upgraded’ and made a helluva lot of my archives totally inaccessible. Apple can go lick hedgehogs … sharp hedgehogs, hedgehogs with very pointy prickles).
** Command-shift-4, and drag.
