While assisting with a wild flower survey on part of the MOD Estate I took the opportunity to take a few shots with the E-M5 and 60mm f2.8 macro. As it was very windy I used manual mode with Auto ISO to enable me to have a fast shutter speed and small aperture for DOF.

Here are a few from the couple of hundred I took.

Scarlet Pimpernel:

Great shots David, well captured, the lens and camera combo are great together but it still takes the skill of the photographer to capture the shot.
