Canon EF-S 35mm Macro using Macro-Light. ISO 100 1/5″ @ f2.8

I borrowed the Canon 77D body with the new 35mm STM Macro lens for the weekend. After I arrived home from work I planned on making a few shots around my home. The first close up image above shows the inside of a broken lens. I had the Macro Light right side active and photographed the image wide open at f2.8. I was interested in examining the bokeh, as this Canon lens has a circular aperture. The out of focus foreground highlights showcase the rounded aperture. I think the lens did a nice job rendering the circular bokeh for this example.
