Montbretia Flowers

Montbretia

By Jason Swain, Just having fun in the garden shooting Montbretia flowers and playing around with the shallow DoF and lovely colours you get with the Canon 50mm f1.2L lens again, its tricky to use but very addictive once you start trying.

Two bees were simultaneously attending to this poppy and the backlighting helped me see, and catch the clouds of pollen they were throwing up with their […]
