Common wood sorrels

Common wood sorrels, originally uploaded by Jonne Naarala.

These beautiful little flowers gave me such great spring or early summer feeling! They grow in shade of big spruces but they really lit up their surroundings.

They were so wonderful that I decided to shoot plants more from now on. I have two wonderful Voigtländer lenses for close-up work. CV40 (40mm/f2.0) is really great when you want to include some more background and habitat in plant close-ups. CV90 (90mm/f3.5), which I used for the above shot, is sweet for tighter close-ups. Both of these lenses have also special close-up lenses which you can attach to them and get greater magnification ratios, 1:4 for CV40 and 1:1.8 for CV90.
