    Seriously trying to hold a camera in one hand when its got a flash on a bracket off to one side is hard enough; trying to balance a moth on the other hand is harder still!


    Also sadly this said new pet flew off not long after this shot; one of the fewer moths to have woken up today.

    Yeah but then I might get pets I don't want - mosquitoes are demanding pets!

    That reminds me of a photo "project" I tried years ago.

    It involves a a close focus lens and a bug zapper. Never did quite catch one just right. Got close on 2. Macro lens focused in too close. Needed a wider view. Like trying to photograph lightning. Don't know exactly where or when. With the zapper you had a general where location though. :aiwebs_016::allteeth:

    @Overread nice shot.

    Summer past time - I have one of those electronic fly swatters, that I use to play tennis with wood bees that seem to love our deck. Wonder if I could attach a camera to the arm that would take multiple continuous shots?
