I like to look for different angles when I photograph. I move around until I find a point of view that I like, and more often than not, my favourite shots end up being the ones from an unusual standpoint.
In this one, rather than taking the shot facing the fence, I stood alongside it and used a shallow depth of field to give it that dreamy look that I love.
When it came in through the garage, I screeched like it was trying to attack me.
My ten-year-old son tried to save me by swatting at it. He’s my hero.
But it was bedtime, so I said let it be and we’d get it in the morning. Then I forgot about the moth.
This morning, the moth was in the bathtub. Before running for the fly swatter, I stopped for a minute and looked at it. It had a surprisingly pretty pattern on its wings.
First, I captured it with my camera. Then, I captured it with a cup and set it free.
(*Please note: The focus in the photo is deliberately softened to make the moth appear less bug-like; those little legs give me the creeps!)
