Day 225 - Aug 17th

On Monday, since the whole family is camping except me, I got kind of lonely over lunch. I looked outside and saw a butterfly, so I grabbed my camera and zoom lens and went out to take some pictures. I sat on our deck swing and waited. And waited. Apparently there were no more butterflies over lunch! So I started zooming in and shooting pictures of flying bugs. The wasps all came out slightly out of focus - I had center focus on and their skinny little bodies allowed the center point to focus on the leaf instead of the creature. D'oh! I should have expanded the focus to five points.

But I did get this fly on a strawberry leaf. He (she? - who can tell with a fly?) came out nice and clear.
