Yesterday evening I charged the battery of my old Olympus SLR,
because I have a fantastic close-up lens for this camera system with an aperture of 2.0
The idea behind the recharging of the battery was to use the (promised) great sunshine on Whitsunday morning to take some close-ups of flowers on my way to my Sunday breakfast location. Because for the afternoon the weather prophets promised us end-of-the-world weather (we have currently).
Anemone sylvestris (snowdrop anemone) was my first object of desire I found on a piece of dry grassland next to a parking area near a highway.
Next to the anemones I found my first military orchids [Orchis militaris],
a species of orchid native to Europe.
To get the best shooing position I had to go flat, in close contact to some thorns and a lot of creepy-crawlies like ants, bugs and ticks... ;-)
I really like the involvement between nature, light and camera technology,
the game with aperture and focus depth.
Scharfer Hahnenfuss [Ranunculus acris], known as meadow buttercup, tall buttercup or giant buttercup.
Finally: a close-up of a part of my breakfast:
sausage salad with peppercorns.
