Anemone hepatica - Leberbl├╝mchen

Last weekend I have been able to spend some time in nature again. For the moment I don't really have the time for serious bird photography so I am trying my luck with some flowers. I went to a spot for Anemone hepatica (hepatica nobilis) and I found big purple fields in a forest near my old home. There were actually so many flowers that I didn't really know where to start and I had quite some difficulities to get started and be creative.

I haven't used my Sigma 150/2.8 HSM for quite a while now , but this time it served its purpose again and it performed perfectly. I also used my Sigma 24/1.8 EX for more wide angle makro shots and I have to say that I am still in love with that lens. For nearly most of the time I used a beanbag to shoot at low angle. I also brought my Gitzo Tripod but I didn't really used it, as it doesn't give me the flexibility I get with a beanbag.
