every once in a while i like to play around with my camera, learn a new setting or two, and there's no better place to practice than my yard...especially in the morning when everything is still covered with dew.
warning: objects in lens are closer than they appear.
so i'm looking thru my camera zoom lens at a lizard on the fence, trying to steady my hand and focus. i was already in close proximity, so with my zoom lens, i was right up against that lizard. i was watching him intensely and he was intensely watching me...or so i thought. in a split second he disappeared behind the fence and came back out with a HUGE cockroach in his mouth. scared me to death. blech. yuck. i almost dropped my camera. it's safe to say i didn't get the shot.
it was a little too close for comfort.
