Bee fly

I have been taking photographs lately, but drifted into being judgmental about the results and feeling that nothing is good enough to publish. Then I remembered that I do this for fun, it’s not a competition with anyone else, I’m just playing around to see what I can do with a simple point and shoot camera.

Setting perfectionist tendencies aside, I think this shot of a bee fly is pretty good given the limitations of my camera and the fact that the creature is only about 1cm long and almost constantly on the move.

    It is easy to fall into the trap of judgement – what exactly are you hoping to judge your efforts against? This is not a career, this is about the freedom to capture a moment, a moment that captured your imagination. All we can do is hope that our photographs capture someone else’s imagination too.
