I am really pleased with this set. The lighting was very nice. The sky was a milky, creamy color. Not exactly overcast, but the light was nicely diffused, resulting in only light shadows.
The camera was the Olympus EM-5. The first 28 images were taken with an Olympus 70-300 zoom that has a nice closeup feature. The remainder were taken with a very old 105mm Nikon Macro lens. All were hand-held. No image stabilization was used other than maintaining a speed equal or greater than 1/focal length. Because of the nice natural light, my flash stayed in the bag.
Below are just a few of the 39. These are the ones that have "critters" on them. I can't resist trying to photograph a bug on a flower. Bees are my favorites. Perhaps that is because, as pollinators, they are helpful to flowers.
The butterfly arriving on the first flower below was a complete surprise. I had picked this flower for a macro shot and the butterfly arrived as I was focusing, and stayed long enough for me to acquire reasonable focus, a difficult thing with this old manual-only focusing lens.
