    I got a Laowa 50mm f/2.8 2X Ultra Macro Lens today I set it up on my Olympus OMD EM1 ii with my STF-8 and tested it on some springtails on my bin and water butt but also on some vegetation but those were one handed.

    Here is a heavy crop from a 2:1 shot

    You must be absolutely frozen taking those! Good to see that Spring is coming! They are all great as usual.

    Thanks Pete.
    I always dress for the weather but these are not a sign of spring they are active all year.
