Laowa 7.5mm Close-up Environmental Portrait

I was in search of a particular butterfly, which I subsequently found. I was at a local nature reserve, which I visit occasionally with my macro gear. I have been there when the orchids are in bloom but this is the first time I have found hundreds of Cowslips as the dominant flowering plant in flower.

I always carry my 7.5mm in my bag and I decided to give it a go towards its macro end of focus. It would have been more effective with one larger, and more colourful, plant in the foreground but such was not available. Anyway, one step in the right direction?

The first image has been cropped on the left side and bottom. The second is the original.

The Cowslips are about a hand-span tall.

Olympus EM-1 (aperture priority, Laowa 7.5mm, f11, hand-held.


The body is willing but the mind is weak.
