Sitting on a leaf

Another macro photo by me and the first one in which I’ve managed to get that close to a living thing and capture its details (and not blur the photo…). The photo isn’t perfect – the wings aren’t in focus – but I’m getting more and more comfortable with macro with every photo I take.

BTW fear not, more HDR photos will appear in following days. I just think that every photographer should from time to time enter fields of photography which aren’t his “comfort zones”. It allows one to improve general skills.
