Normally I would shoot those with my Sigma for macro (and I did that too), but when you have Helios 40-2 to your disposal for few days, you shoot anything you can find.Normalnie użyłabym tu mojej Sigmy do macro (zrobiłam to poźniej), Ale gdy macie przez kilka dni dyspozycji Heliosa 40-2 to fotografujecie to tylko się da.

Those weren't far - right outside the door at my mum's garden. Not the easiest subject too as all the buggers move fast and lavender likes to move to. With fully manual settings and manual focus it was a bit struggle. Not everything is focused the way I am used to have, but they are not supposed to me macro shots. They are about the colour, the movement, the bokeh.Tych daleko szukać nie musiałam - tuż za drzwiami w ogrodzie mamy. Nie były to najłatwiejsze do fotografowania modele. Wszelkie robale poruszają się szybko, a i lawena lekko chwiała się na wietrze. Przy całkowicie ręcznych ustawieniach aparatu i ostrości, trochę się męczyłam. Nie wszystko jest tak wyostrzone jak bym chciała, ale w sumie nie jest to maco. Tu chodzi o ruch, kolor i to boskie bokeh.
Oh... the bokeh..
And butterflies look like little fairies in some purple fairyland.
Ach.. bokeh…
I Wszystkie motyle wyglądają jak rusałki w jakiejś fioletowej krainie baśni.

And right above there was this big yellow one enjoying sweet pea flowers.A nieco wyżej ten wielki, żółty rozkoszwał się słodkim groszkiem.

Yup! So beautiful, so many fairies there! That lens is magical.

What a perfect picture.
I am interested in seeing flowers and butterflies, they are one and cannot be separated.
