I've just been in a slump lately. I've been struggling to either find a shot or capture it correctly, or both. Bleh.

Well you're emerging from it. Really like the first for comp, and the others for the colours.

Welcome to my world :)

It does get better, honestly. These shots are not terrible, and there will be a point at which it falls into place, and you will get stuff of which you will be proud.

Enjoy the chance to see nature close up until then.

Please stick with it, these are really nice to look at. Give it a little time and something will just click into place, we all are sill learning and that will never stop!

Thanks guys. I won't give up. I might just try to take a few days off and come back with some new perspective. Thanks for the encouragement.

Keep up the good work, Tiller. Long-legged flies are most difficult to shoot & I want you to know that you did great! Love that second shot!
