[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
One of the worst aspects of outdoor photography is that I have to concentrate on holding the camera steady whilst various insects land for a bite of my skin.
In this case, while at Heart Lake, this mosquito alit on one hand. Somehow I managed to use the other hand to set the camera to MACRO mode, hold it steady, aim and press the shutter button without error.
I'm getting good at this technique, thanks to Minolta for making ergonomics a high priority in their camera design.
