When all else fails…
Continuing the Botanical Garden series, here is something I learned from the trip. When you can’t find any insects to shoot and all attempts fail, there is one that will not fail. One that can be found in any park. What is that insect you ask?
Why, it’s none other than the fly. Head to your nearest park trash bin and you’ll find plenty of these buggers buzzing around for you to shoot. The shot above was taken on a blue color trash bin.
Well, actually that is not exactly my point. The moral of the story is to know your insects well. Knowing what type of insect lives where and the places they like to hide in will increase your chances of finding subjects to shoot by a lot. Doing some homework before exploring an area can help you to find more subjects to shoot.
The above shot is my personal favorite simply because of the posture the fly is in. It looks as if he is hanging onto the blade of grass ready to take a plunge to the ground.
As usual, more macro shots from the Botanical Gardens to follow as soon as I am done editing my shots. Stay tuned for more updates!
