Lori Ditlefsen June 10, 2004

Thank you so much Janet! A tripod seems too confining to me so I've learned how to use my body, sometimes as a contortionist, to steady the camera for my macro shots! I'm really bad with camera shake if I don't! LOL #586903

Lori, the detail in this is amazing! Holding the camera with one hand and getting such clear focus seems almost impossible, but you proved otherwise. Great job!

Description

This little lady landed on me yesterday while out shooting. It grabbed it's head with both front legs as if to say the title. LOL Camera on macro, one hand held the other had the bug on it, sunny day with the sun at my back. I braced the camera on my chest, and put my hand where I wanted it for the close shot.
