pogo, coffee and me

with a bit of cinnamon and cream

the end

 brown argus / plebejus (aricia) agestis

when you come to the end of the lupine,

try to fly.

Don’t crawl back down to the ground.

  1. I like the contrast between the sharpness and blurriness.

  2. thanks– it has to do with choosing a focal point in the lens and the light radiating from the white lupin. Sometimes the lens gets confused because there are two different things competing for center focus so it gets all hyper and jittery. The only way to shoot an image is to move the focus point off the center and onto a specific point away from the distracting object whereas physically moving about the subject might be absolutely impossible since the fly might fly off or all other angles to shoot the fly might be blocked by vegetationor just inaccessible.

  3. We don’t always trust our wings, do we? 🙂 I like this one…
