National Botanic Garden of Wales

Photos from a day out at the National Botanic Garden of Wales near Carmarthen a few weeks ago.

All shot with an Olympus OM-4ti on Agfa CT Precisa 100.

The butterflies were taken in the Butterfly House (surprise, surprise!) with the Zuiko 40mm/f2. The light was quite poor so I had to shoot wide open. I don’t actually have a macro lens but the 40mm focuses down to 30cm.

Flowers shot with my ever reliable Tamron 70-210mm/3.5, mostly at the long end of the zoom. I don’t know the names of all of the flowers, sorry, apart from some obvious ones such as the thistle, dahlia and Welsh poppy.

I’ve tried and failed many times to get a half decent photo of a bee in flight – finally managed it with this one.
