This is our agapantha plant after the sprinklers came on this morning. I was experimenting with a new macro lens.

Nice capture. At first I was going to say something about the rain, but then I read on.

@marlboromaam Of course you can Maggie. I didn't use any processing software except gimp to crank up the shadows. I shot it with my "new" 135 mm macro lens. I say new because I have learned that I can use older lenses from film cameras with an adapter and they work just fine on my Olympus. They are strictly manual focus and manual exposure, but that is no biggie to me. That is the way I learned to use lenses eons ago. Everyone wants the new digital lenses these days and as such you can pick up the old ones on ebay cheap. That macro lens I bought set me back $20 on ebay. I just bought a nifty 50, and a 80-200 macro that I haven't received yet. So, lots of toys to play with.

@jaboney Pinned. Very cool, Mike! Unfortunately, I can't use an adapter for this camera. Could damage the zoom because the lens doesn't come off. One of these days. LOL! Have fun with your lens! You're doing great with it! Look forward to seeing some shots done with the other one, too!
