Perfectly, this soft looking, out of focus robin illustrates my problem.
Most of my photographs are terrible. And getting a really good one, like that demoiselle yesterday, is pure luck.
I'm all but abandoning macro shots of anything animal; I cannot get a sharp image at all with my shaky hands and the narrow depth of field is totally unforgiving. It frustrates me so much sometimes.
I have to stay back, shoot on the normal lens with whatever zoom I can handle, and shoot insects that way. As for birds, only bright light will help with that one.
As for the good news, well my first entirely self written and self snapped nature mini-magazine should be going out at work soon. Photos look better at a small size on paper rather than on a hi-res screen!
