Laowa 15mm f4 Macro Lens Sample Images

I've written a number of posts featuring images taken with the Laowa 15mm macro lens including this review and this recent post on photographing Large Red Damselflies. However I'm often asked to provide examples of images taken with this lens so I thought I would add this post in which I include some of my favourite images taken so far.

Spring Bees

In early spring the main subjects of my photographic attention were the various solitary bees that were visiting my garden on a regular basis. I've yet to process all of the images I took but here are a few of them.
