Tulips: The Inside Story
Wednesday 18 March 2015 — Category: Shooting
Stepping a bit closer, I took a peek inside the flowers and found the contents quite interesting! As soon as I got back from my walk, I mounted my Olympus 60mm macro lens onto my Olympus OM-D E-M5 camera, and then got to work.
I was very happy with the performance of my macro lens. It focused quickly and accurately. It captured lots of detail, particularly the texture of the stamens. The quality was good enough for me to indulge in some close-up crops, which is not always possible.
What a beautiful, delightful world bees have to explore inside a tulip cup! Like a bee, I flitted from one flower to another, seeing what kind of shots I could get. I ended up with 8 photos. The best 3, plus 2 close-up crops, I’ve added to the Homemade Images 2015 album.
