One to one macro with the Olympus 60mm lens

its a bugs world

This week was a focus on macro photography with the Olympus 60mm f/2.8 lens mounted on the Olympus OM-D E-M5.  The settings were full manual including full manual focus.  I used the 1:1 switch on the lens to ensure it was set at the full magnification of 1:1.  I don't usually shoot at this magnification but I was really just playing to make sure I really understood this lens before I took it underwater for a little fun.  All photos were taken handheld and with the FL-50R flash in IR mode (also hand held).  I like this combination as it allows me to direct light where I want it, though I do on occassion use a ring flash (depending on the subject to photographed).  Each of the insects and animals photographed here were found throughout my gardens.
