Throwback Thursday: green on lilac

I took this image in May 2010. I was out for photographing the wonderful blooming lilac with my macro lens. When checking the images on the tiny back screen of my camera, I noticed some fine lines crossing the whole image. What’s that? I feared, I might have harmed the lens or the sensor. So, I went home for checking the camera and the images.

Fortunately, my camera and my lens were not broken. Instead, accidentally I got a spider web between my camera and the lilac. So, I went back and tried hard to find the spider web again. This time, I even found the spider. See, how tiny it is compared to a single lilac blossom. It’s an Araniella cucurbitina, sometimes called the “cucumber green spider”. It becomes only 6mm (females) and 4mm (male) ‘big’.

Take care!

Throwback Thursday: Shrivelled Rose

Here we have another image taken with the Pentacon 100/2.8. I told you a bit more about that lens last year. It’s a violet blooming rose. The rose in the image was really blooming in violet.

I really like the small field of depth, especially when using the lens for taking macro images. Although, you can’t really speak of macro images, when having a minimum distance of about 60-70 cm from your subject.

Take care!
