The Venus Optics Laowa 15mm f/4 Macro Lens is pretty good at getting the entire environment while creating a very sharp closeup. The only problem is, for a shot like this, one has to lie down and I am not far off from being unable to get back up again. Guess I’ll have to start wearing one of those “LifeAlert” necklaces. 🙂
This is a Pink Lady’s Slipper (Cypripedium acaule) which often can be found all white.
Although the perspective seems normal, I was actually just a couple of inches from the flower.
But, of course, I can’t get near one of these White Pink Lady’s Slippers without an up close and personal.
These are one of those things you claim the ability to stop at any time but keep making images just the same. Such a captivating flower.
