I two lessons today.
- Taking photos of moving things (bees, frogs, birds, etc.) is hard.
- Taking photos of still things is also hard.
I went to check up on the orb spider, she’s doing good. Looking spooky in her home.
I found a ruptured puffball!
There were also bees at this point in time – but they spent so little time on each flower that the photographs are not worth using up the storage space and posting here. One day!
And later on, when I went out again I got a fantastic opportunity to photograph a dragonfly resting on a lead. About 80 pictures left I got a picture that was in focus. Go me.☺
In so far as finding things that aren’t just in my backyard I have a tide pooling trip, and at least three zoo trips semi-planned so I’m thinking of these backyard posts as good practice for when I start finding more extraordinary things. Which – I mean – all of these things that just live in my backyard are extraordinary but you know. You can only take so many pictures of squirrels and the same spider – as bulbous as her posterior may be.
