Rainy Day Flowers

Yesterday was a cool rainy day, and we headed to Fairchild again. Butterflies were not in the best of moods. We got some, but spent more time with the flowers, since it was cloudy, we could work longer than we usually would.

In this case, I sussed the Leica 35 Summilux ASPH FLE, with a close up filter. I have found this to work very well for me vs a macro lens. I’m not aware of an f/1.4 macro lens, and if there is, I’m sure it would be really big. So happy camper with my combo, that coupled with the mirror less Sony a7 mkII is now my favorite macro rig.

Tomorrow it is supposed to be record cold here, low of 37F, praying for cloudy skies to go out again. In the meantime, here are some from yesterday.
