They say "no pain, no gain," but I don't see progress for all the pain here. Crawling in the wet ground on the edge of the water, just for starters. I just can't get enough depth of field without sacrificing light, but I'll keep trying. Even when I'm perpendicular to the odes either the tail or the thorax is blurry.
I have lived in the Christmas Mountains since 1976, and started my oasis in 1996. You can contact me at email@example.com for visiting instructions. No minors. Pet rules are the same as for Big Bend National Park.
