    Last weekend I decided to visit the "Jardín Botánico José Celestino Mutis" that is the botanical garden of Bogotá, where I live. The city is located at at 2,640 metres (8,660 ft) above sea level, which means that even though we are very close to the equator line, the climate is mild, with average temperatures of 57°F during the day and 41°F at night. On average, temperatures remain relatively stable throughout the year as compared to more seasonal countries such as the USA, Europe and Australia.

    This time of the year we have a wonderful weather with very clear and blue sky, that invited for a new photographic session. This is the very fist time that I attempt to shoot flowers, that I found very rewarding. I wanted to share some of the photos, I really hope you enjoy the images.

    All photos were taken with an OM-EM5 with the OLY 12-40 f2.8 or the OLY 60 f2.8.
