My favourite floral and rain photo of all time is this one of a stella d'oro lily, with raindrops glistening in the sun, and so the subject has fascinated me ever since.
Must learn how switch my new macro from manual to auto & back again on purpose. (I can do it by accident...) In the meantime, I was out at the peony garden the other day, and it was loaded with photographers, like at least three others. The horror.
Peony with water drops. 29may2021, approx 07:30; sony Ilce7c, 1/100s, f/5.0, ev-0.3 ISO 1000, sony prime 90mm macro lens WB: shade
Nevertheless I had some fun with this blossom sitting on the ground, weighted by the previous night's rain. I guess I've been shooting these things long enough that basic ‘head shots’ are no longer interesting....
For the sony 90mm macro lens, either push or pull it along its long axis—there are even helpful little triangles printed on the distal edge—to switch it. Absurdly easy, once I figured it out, but I had never encountered this before, so it was confusing.
