A new bouquet. Another opportunity to run the macro lens through its paces. The light wasn’t very good, but the lens seems surprisingly forgiving despite that. It isn’t a particularly fast lens, just f2.8. Apparently there are things critical to focus other than bright light, notably contrast and texture.
Some colors seem to come into focus easier than others. I find reds and purples the most difficult. To be fair, they are the most difficult no matter what lens I use. Plus, I find red the most difficult color to reproduce accurately without distortion.
After that, in order of difficulty, white, pastels, and very dark blue. Medium colors — orange, yellow, pink — seem to be easier.
Finally, just one garden shot — the white Hydrangea blooming with the day lilies. Using the exact opposite lens — my longest 4/3 telephoto.
