No Regard for Photography!

Jeg hadde tatt meg en liten tur i hagen for å se etter spennende motiver da jeg plutselig oppdaget en ‘flyvende edderkopp’! Flyvende fordi den tilsynelatende klamret seg til en tynn tråd mens vinden rusket i buskene og sendte denne tråden ut i alle retninger. Her ble det ikke tatt hensyn til fotografer i knestående! Ikke i det hele tatt! Og selv om jeg har en rask autofokus, så forutsetter jo det at kameraet kan finne et fast fokuseringspunkt? Hvilket var ganske umulig i dette tilfellet! Derfor over til ‘manuell fokusering’ som slett ikke ble noe enklere, men – så kom flaksen inn i bildet. Og plutselig fikk jeg tak i noe jeg trodde jeg kunne bruke?  Men – denne ‘tassen’ var bare ca 1,5 mm stor, og det var først da jeg fikk behandlet bildet at jeg oppdaget at jeg ikke hadde fotografert ‘jegeren’, men middagsmaten! For ser man på øynene, så er dette definitivt en liten flue – fortsatt på ca 1.5 mm, men da hadde jeg allerede tekstet bildet! 🙂
Det vesentligste for meg er jo at det faktisk er mulig å ta et bilde under slike forhold!
I had made me a small trip into the garden in order to possibly find a couple of exiting motives when I suddenly discovered a flying spider! ‘Flying’ because he was evidently hugging to a long silk thread whilst the breeze were shooting through the bushes sending this thread into just about any direction! Here there were no regard for elderly photographer knee standing! Not at all! And even if my autofocus is rather fast, it depends on the camera finding a steady focusing point. Which was utterly impossible!
So I had to switch to manual focusing, which didn’t really make my task any easier!
But then ‘luck’ was brought to the scene. Suddenly I got a glimpse of something that might be usable. Hurrah! But- this little creature was only something like 1,5 mm across and only when I had worked the picture I discovered that I most certainly had not caught the hunter himself, but his dinner! Because looking at its eyes, this is definitely no spider but a small fly – still only 1,5 mm across, though, but by then I had already texted my photo. 🙂
The important part for me is the ability to shoot a picture under such conditions!

    Kjempekult å se på! Det kalles balooning. Edderkoppen spinner en tråd som er festet i feks et tre. Deretter lar den vinden ta tråden og seg selv over store avstander. Smart!

      Ja, jeg kjenner jo den teknikken, men du som er litt inni dette: Er det en fremtidig middag der eller er det virkelig en edderkopp på tråden. Øynene indikererer ‘flue, men jeg synes beina er mer edderkopp?

    Wow! Great shot, Svein. Interesting little creature walking the high wire.

    To be honest, David, I can’t make up my mind about this one. If ‘dinner’ I imagine he had no choice?
    If ‘hunter’, yes definitely! But looking at the eyes it must be a fly. Looking at the curved legs, however, I’m no longer quite sure. He’s so tiny . . .

  5. I am sure all animals have a sixth sense….and avoid photographers at all costs 🙂
