Forget-me-not (Myosotis scorpioides) forever remains a challenge for me to capture on camera. The only place I've found it growing has been one soggy spot right on the water's edge of the Monongahela river. It's a low-growing plant in a shady spot.
I wanted as much depth of field as possible with my macro lens, so it forced me to shoot at the slowest possible speed. This shot was taken at f/7.0, 200 iso, at 1/50th of a second. I scrounged a piece of bark to kneel on and held the camera as steady as I could, which is challenging to do when you've just been biking.
The top and left of the picture (see below) were still out of focus, so I cropped it out of the picture as much as I could. The results are not unpleasing. If you have a sharp eye, you may have noticed the photo-bomber in the lower-right corner of the picture: some winged insect is hiding behind the unopened buds.
