Xanthorea and a stormy sky

Xanthorea and a stormy sky lens baby baby!

On of the most noticeable features of the Western Australian bush is the Xanthorea or grass tree also called a black boy because of its black burnt trunk. This is a Xanthorea flower spike which they seem to shoot out every few years much to the delight of every nectar loving creature.

Lumix G3 f5.6 1/30s ISO 160 Lensbaby Pro

Forest view, Jarrah, Marri and a little black boy, Xanthorrhoe preissii. One of my first photos made with a new Lensbaby Pro. I had the first model that I used on a Canon 5d. The new Lensbaby pro is a huge improvement over the older unit, the focus is silky smooth as is the tilt. I have the Lensbaby double glass optic which is essentially 100mm on the micro 4/3 mount it will be interesting to try this with the closeup optic on flowers. Not too many flowers here at the moment as it has been so hot today was a cool 33deg! But given some rain I should be able to sample the possible lights of this lens hopefully by the end of the month.
