    We were at the Tennessee Aquarium and I was trying to get a picture of another butterfly. I was following it and trying to get a good closeup. Dh was getting impatient as he's not a bigg butterfly guy and he & kids were calling me to move on. The one I wanted flew away. I literally moved the camera and shot thinking I'd missed and this was the result. NOt too shabby for a P&S and especially for a shot I didn't intend to shoot.

    This one was on purpose, just not as pretty...

    Isn't an impatient family a nuisance ;) !?!?
    You want your time to compose and get your intented subjects land on where you are focused (if the subject is butterflies, for example ;)), and they shout and call and make you nervous! I understand so well.

    Lucky you to still have got that first of the two photos shown here! :D That was a nice "accident", wasn't it?
    The other is also quite impressive.

    Either of these might want to go into cherrymoose's Photo Theme thread on "Nice Pictures Taken with a Point&Shoot" (?)
