Here is my contribution for the week. The first was taken with my D-FA 100mm macro and the rest with my smc-A 24 f2.8. I was playing with the high contrast digital filter...

Thanks for hosting again nosliwmit, you are setting the record here! A few from my recent consecutive days visit over the weekend to Kloofendal Nature Reserve, seeing that level 3 lockdown now allows parks and recreation facilities to be opened again.
Sometimes the Tamron 70-300mm Macro surprises me

I'll contribute... experimenting with the FD50 f1.8, I'm getting used to it day by day...The main purpose is to learn the weaknesses of the lens so I can get the full potential. I love the look of it, the pp is minimal, only some contrast correction because the nifty is a little soft. The photos below are from a morning walk, yes, all from one day, but I find the set interesting and it's the most interesting intriguing theme of my week.
