This is just a practice shot that I took while trying to master the art of macro photography. Trying to get the hang of getting a sharp shot even with the wind blowing.
This shot is from my backyard, just a flower bed by the house. My homemade light diffuser was kind of yellowish in colour creating a yellow tint in the raw shot. Can be rectified if I did a better post processing job.
