M5: Cygnet update, Garden update and some macro fun

I went to the lake late in the afternoon to check on the Swan family, now that the little cygnet previously posted in this forum was a month old. The family was foraging by one of the islands too far away even for my Sigma 60-600mm Sport lens, so I waited by the channel that separated them from their nest. As the family swam back, they stopped to forage once again exactly in range of the 600mm (966mm equiv.) zoom. And even posed for a family portrait:

The work on refreshing my home gardens continues and there are now 29 images photographed with the M5 and various M and EF lenses in my Gallery. If you like flowers, colors and just the beauty of Nature, you can see a slideshow here (choose the 4 arrow symbol at the top right to go full screen). Here are two of the latest images, first with the EF-M 18-150mm:

and also with the "Macro" mode of the 60-600mm Sport:

This next image is also from the gardens slideshow, but uses the Super Macro mode on the EF-M 28mm Macro lens:

This next Garden image is not in the slideshow, but is also additional Macro fun with the 1.2:1 setting of the EF-M 28mm lens:
