meet the beast

I came back from my recent trip to Moscow with some new glass.  Meet Zenit Helios 40-2C (85mm f/1.5) AKA the beast because it makes my shooting hand go numb from it’s weight. I am learning to love it, with it’s crazy gorgeous way to capture light but very elusive slow manual focus. For bonus points, identify the plant whose leaves are basking in the rays (answer below)
