Last September, we went on a trip to South Tyrol. Luckily, it was really warm that weekend and we went hiking quite a bit! What a perfect occasion to try out the macro lens I got for my last birthday. While walking around looking for flowers and other stuff to take really detailed pictures off, I found a cute little butterfly on a stone:
I assumed that until I changed my lens and got the settings right, the butterfly would probably be gone already. But I was lucky and it did not care at all about the noise I made taking pictures. Also when I came really close to the butterfly with my lens (about 5cm), it did not fly away:
It appeared as it was just sitting there, enjoying the last rays of sun of the year before winter. That gave me the, probably once in a lifetime, chance to take a REAL close up with my macro lens:
I still can’t believe how lucky I was… This is just incredible, don’t you think?
Have you ever tried macro photography? What sort of pictures did you take?
