macro experiments

With the better weather upon us up here next to the Gulf Stream, and the proliferation of growing things (both fauna and flora), my intermittent interest in macro gets stoked up again ... so much so that I start hunting eBay for bargain micro-nikkors ... there are none (not bargains, anyway) ... in the meantime, I dug out the old 105/2.8 Auto-Takumar and a set of tubes ... in fact, I just bought some m43 tubes so I can use the Hexanons as well ... five minutes outside the back door produced these ... not the finest examples in the world, but I like them ... all handheld and uncropped, but very lightly toned and sharpened

more macro experiments

this time with a 35mm Summicron ... still handheld, and the wind was gusting ... anyway, what's interesting to me is pixel-peeping the dandelion head ... much CA in the Takumar shot, none really detectable in the Sumicron ... big difference in FL of course ... also with the Summicron, the focus distance is almost impossibly close ... but all fun ...

Shared these elsewhere, but they work well here as well.
