The wind and rain makes macro photography a bit hard, so I’ll repost older pics regularly until I can take some new ones.

A ladybug on top of a loopy leaf was one of my favourite pictures from 2015. Since then I have checked the snake head plants (Fritillaria meleagris) for more swirly leaves as I felt there was more to be done with the scene. I was lucky to find one in spring 2017 and give it another go. 

While I feel there is still a lot to play with in this scene, I really like the result. Macro photography can be a bit dull (and that is coming from me) with just a subject (preferably placed just out of the centre) and a nice blurry background (with some bokeh). This scene kicked me from auto-pilot into manual thinking mode. What is the light doing? Where are the lines going? Can you see the ladybug properly? Is the loopy leaf clearly visible? This moment blew the dust that settled during the winter from my brain and made me exercise macro photography to its full extent. There is no better way to start the season than a difficult challenge.

This double bill ends my week of favourites. I love the summer-y feel of the one with the poppies. The flower with the curls is simply odd. 

I hope you all enjoyed this flashback, I surely always do. Thanks for sticking with me.:)! With a bit of luck there will be new pictures in the coming week.

This picture is a nod to a similar picture from a couple of years ago. Where that one was completely green (apart from the ladybug), here you see the lovely spring flowers the leaf belongs to. Sometimes re-trying an older pic leads to something quite different :).

There weren’t as many ladybug photoshoot opportunities this year. The weather hasn’t been great and I was busy with other (more boring) things too. Yet, I still managed to try something new with my favoured combination of a ladybug and crocuses.
