Today, this little fly landed on my leg when we stopped to check into a hotel, then he rode on my finger when we took the motorcycle to our room! Since he was on my right-hand pinkie finger, I had to get him in focus THEN snap the shutter with my same-hand pointer finger! Considering the contortions I went through to get the shot, I loved the way it turned out!

(I wanted to keep him, but Larry wouldn't let him in the room!)

      Wow that was lucky and you must have been very quick to catch him before he did fly away OR Larry swatted him???? ;)

      Lol! "Fly Away" I posted that as my song today. I am very amazed and impressed by your photo-taking ability. I have had occasion to do the one hand shot and let me tell ya, the results ... .well, they sucked.
      These are great Brenda!!!
