This was going to be a “new perspective” shot.
There I was, crouched as low as I could get – less low than that used to be – trying to get a shot of the underside of a mushroom. Not that I’d be the first, or even in the first hundred thousand, to have that thought and try for that shot, but hey.
With the LCD screen tilted down to the ground, I couldn’t see what I was shooting. I clicked and hoped for the best. With the sun high overhead, I couldn’t see much detail on the screen afterwards either. I hoped for the best, and moved on to the next opportunity. It was only when I uploaded the photo to my computer that I could see what I had really taken a picture of.
The surprise shots are great fun! Congratulations
Judith: Thanks! I guess as long as it’s just a slug and not a snake . . .
Slugs are neat and that’s a nice environmental shot.
That’s what I call a “belly shot”. â˜º Get down on your belly to take it.
There is a lot of interesting stuff down there that one doesn’t see standing up.
Jim R – As long as I can get back up!
So, the slug was eating the chosen mushroom, or resting in its shade, or admiring the view, when your camera captured it? Surprise! It does look contented.
Mary – It might have been sneaking up on me, getting ready to inch/jump out and shout, “Surprise!” But I surprised it first.
