Tonight's Moon

Tonight's MoonWell done. I was looking at the moon tonight and thinking it is a little hazy to get a good shot, but you got a decent one - exposure seems spot on in particular. There is a slight feeling of blur, even though it looks clear when I study individual bits - maybe it's my eyes!

This shot really does show that it's not 100% full tonight. I was just remarking earlier that to the naked eye it looks pretty much like a full moon.

Bee? Or is it a Wasp?

Bee? Or is it a Wasp?You're new to macro? Very good shot then. It looks like a hoverfly - my dog spat one out last night, so I recognise them as not stinging.

You could get more depth of focus with a smaller aperture, but then your shutter speed would be so low you couldn't hand hold and the subject would blur from moving about anyway if you tried a tripod.

It looks lovely on screen, but I guess from what you're asking that it's not sharp enough to print out? Short of trying to get the same set-up indoors, or waiting for a still day (mornings and evenings can be less windy) I don't know of a good solution.

Like your work though.
