Steady as She Goes

So much of my experience in photographing the world around me seems to serve more as a cautionary tale.  Take my lunchtime walk with camera down the rail trail.

I haven't progressed beyond my usual boring subjects of flowers and bees.  Even more to the point, though, is that I'm attempting these pictures without benefit of a tripod.  This shot is "good enough for government work," but the slight blurriness of a handheld shot is a bit shy of publication quality.

I've got a perfectly vivid flower and a somewhat cooperative bumblebee.   The problem is that this picture isn't sharp enough to really stand out.

Sure is a pretty flower, though.
