    While assisting with a wild flower survey on part of the MOD Estate I took the opportunity to take a few shots with the E-M5 and 60mm f2.8 macro. As it was very windy I used manual mode with Auto ISO to enable me to have a fast shutter speed and small aperture for DOF.

    Here are a few from the couple of hundred I took.

    Scarlet Pimpernel:

    P7300422.

    Field Grasshopper:

    P7300427.

    Very small Froghopper (3mm) on the Canon Lens barrel:

    P7300421.

    Dusky Sallow moth resting on Common Knapweed:

    P7300445.

    Soldier Beetle and Small Skipper on Ragwort:

    P7300468.

    Hoverflies:

    P7300488.

    P7300490.

    Buff-tailed Bumble:

    P7300436.

    Good set all around, but the first hoverfly is just gorgeous!
