Yesterday I dragged out the Micro Aquaria and a dollar store net to see what I could find in the pond at Hastings Park. This little park is a bit of an oasis for me, featuring a real live pond, some nice vegetation, and an eagle’s nest across the street. It was actually a bit less seething with life than I’d hoped*, but there was quite a bit to keep me occupied for a few hours.
At the end of the day, I think I really need to refine my techniques for aquatic photography. There are some people who can do it really well; for an example, check out Jan Hamrsky’s photostream. I really miss the saturation and clarity you get with the air-to lens interface. I will work on this over the summer, in between the thesis, grant and job search…Keep posted, and I will keep posting!
* I did find a waterscorpion, bit of course this was far too large for my aquaria!
