I was experimenting with dof, and this guy happened to fly in at just about the plane of focus. Wheels down, radar contact made.

Great timing! 80% of being a nature photographer is being in the right place at the right time!

That's a really neat shot - not only in the right place at the right time, but looks like all the camera settings were just right!

Very cool. I had one similar to that a few years back as well. Fun surprise when an insect makes a decision to join your shot.

Thank you everyone--very encouraging. I hate to admit this Yellowhead, but I don't even know what a mirror lens is. I shot it with Rebel xti and 75-300 lens. The background black is due to having just cleaned the pond. Nothing like sterile black plastic. The light circles are the fountain. Loved your comment Finnbay on 80% of nature photography is to be in the right place at the right time. Does this hark back to the old saying that a "woman's place is in the kitchen?" I was sitting on my countertop shooting out the window.

    • No dave.   Quite sure i'm aware of the equipment I was born with..   And how to use it..
    • Enter Governor smith..   Non-elected by design.   She couldn't win an election for dog catcher, let alone Governor..   Did anyone really believe sickly mark dayton could/would finish his term ??    
    • Trump made good on one of his core campaign promises. Leaders from each of the major trade unions applauded the withdrawal from TPP. Leaders representing Teamsters, Laborers', Sheet metal workers',  Carpenters, Plumbers, Pipefitters, Welders and others. The union meeting also included several local union officials. Labor chiefs described their meeting with D.T. as "incredible".. A great step towards revitalizing the U.S building trades and manufacturing economy.   (These are unions that endorsed hillary....)   Trump also told labor union leaders that he would renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement "at the appropriate time.      
    • FYI Standard day conditions is 29.92
    • Brit Hume is now a "Trump supporter" ??     Doh-Kay...    
    • Or..... The Russians.
    • Stay classy. 
    • Withdrawing from the TPP could have the effect of giving countries like China a bigger hand in the world economy over the US.   Or withdrawing from TPP could have absolutely no effect on anything whatsoever
    • If you can't figure out why Trump goes after the media I can't help you.  I've explained plenty of times why I don't answer questions from the good ol boys club.  Yet you keep asking them......sounds like something a tool would do.     #hypocritesandfrauds
