When I first acquired a macro lens, I went a little crazy and had so much fun. Early on, I found a large patch of morning glories to practice on in a neighbor’s yard, and these flowers taught me a great deal about focus, patience, light, and so much more! (Olympus E-510 & Zuiko 35mm macro, 1/80 sec., f/11, ISO 200, open shade, handheld)
