Well done Lori. The art of photogrsphy in patience. #1296328

Lori Ditlefsen April 27, 2005

Thanks so much Char and Karen!

Besides them moving around, it was a challenge to tip toe around the unclean dog's pen trying not to step in anything, set the tripod legs in it, or let the camera strap fall into it! hehe Next problem was they kept sitting on the piles rather than on a blade. Not a very appealing shot for sure! hehe Oh the things we do for a good shot, eh! :) #1296575

This photo took several attempts and many shots to get. These two kept jumping from blade to blade when I got close with the camera and mini tripod. Persistence paid off! Camera on auto macro mode. Competing with Thy's macro shots is my only fear about winning with this one! hehe Love your shots, Thy! :)
