This week temperature has risen to almost comfortable levels – 10-15 degrees Celsius. This means that insects and flowers are emerging i larger numbers, so I grabbed the camera with the Sigma 105 f/2.8 Macro lens and spent an hour on the ground in the garden.

Even though photos here are taken on f/10 to provide a large depth of field (DoF) it’s not that large. I get a very small DoF because I’m using 105 mm focal length and because my focus distance is 31-45 cm, as you can see actually only 3-5 mm of the image depth will be rendered sharp in the final photo.
Luckily it’s only small items i have been photographing today, so most can be included in the DoF, but even a 4-5 mm long spider easily fall partly out of focus.
