19th – 25th August 2019
Most of the time when I go out with my camera, I know what I am shooting. House sparrows, Blue Tits, Great Tits, Robins etc… they are my comfort zone.
There have been quite a few times since I began blogging that I’ve had to research what I’ve seen. This week that has been in the form of a Damsel/Common Darter fly (still unsure).
Its always a thrill to capture something new and although there huge gaps in my knowledge of the natural world, I love learning.
My main ways for identifying is to go to reference books, asking on Instagram or google lens. This hasn’t worked out for me this week but I am down to 2 possible outcomes!
Macro photography is also one of my weakest styles, but one I’m keen to improve in. In the coming weeks I hope to add at least one macro shot to each weekly watch.
Expect a few mistakes in identifying, any correction is welcomed! I hope you enjoy this weeks weekly.
