This is another of the flowers I saw and photographed on New Year’s morning – a striking little pansy whose blue petals caught my eye from a distance. Aside from a slight crop and minor sharpening, this image is straight from the camera. (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/6.3, 1/125 sec., ISO 640, filtered morning sun)

    Superb presentation, Celeste…. all those lines and patterns in that vivid blue… very nice!

  • Thanks, Katherine! The macro lens brings out a lot of detail that the eye would otherwise miss.
