I was attracted to the hydrangeas in her garden. There were roses, too, of my favourite colour (yellow and orange tip) and even flowers from pakchoi (petsay to us Filipinos). I am rubbish at gardening so I indulge on my admiration of flowers by taking photos instead. And I couldn't let this opportunity pass.
While composing for my shots, I noticed a few garden beetles in the petals and leaves. So, I included them as well. Then there were spiders, symmetrical leaf forms, water drops in the leaves and flowers (it rained the previous night) and more.
A few minutes with my Olympus E-PL5 mounted with the Olympus mZuiko 12-50mm kit lens on macro mode was a great enough morning shutter therapy form me. If you want to see more pictures and at a higher resolution please visit my Flickr album Stoke-on-Trent garden flowers and bugs. The photos in this post are all out-of-camera (OOC) jpegs reduced in resolution and watermarked.
No post-processing with Snapseed whatsoever this time. I thought I'd like to show you the beautiful colours made by Olympus OOC jpegs.
