I went out with my miniature macro attachment to the iPhone last week and captured photographs of a few wildflowers. Apart from the overall mediocre image quality (thank you Apple!) and extremely shallow depth-of-field, the macro adapter does a reasonably good job.

Sainfoins (Onobrychis viciifolia) belong to the pea family (Leguminosae/Fabaceae). My trusted Collins Complete Guide to British Wildflowers tells me that these are generally found in dry, calcareous grasslands, which is exactly where I found these growing!

I bought myself a cheap and tiny macro attachment for the iPhone. While it was nice being able to photograph details of flowers using this, the quality is as to be expected – both by the camera on the phone and quality of the attachment. Nonetheless, I will be using this more when I don’t want to be lugging a camera with me on a walk
