Essays with a compact camera on a trip:

I's frustrating, its humiliating, its awesome, to try macros with a compact camera! Focussing is difficult. In this case I applied some rules: the prey has to be reasonably big, there is to be no wind and I have to shoot many times.

ID: Arran brown (Lepidoptera; Satyridae; Erebia ligea; Weissbindiger Mohrenfalter). It sits on Centaurea jacea. The underside can be seen in a workshop version. Thanks Peter (batu) for correcting the ID! The picture has been taken at the beautiful Lech river at 950 m a.s.l. (see Map:View for details).

Technical stuff: Cybershot DSC-H10 with Zeiss Tessar zoom, magnifying lens, UV filter, antishake, ISO 100, 1/400 sec, f/4

Lieber Dietrich,
da ich in den letzten Wochen TN weniger häufig besucht habe, habe ich nicht bemerkt, dass
du von deiner langen Fahrradtour zurückgekehrt bist und hier Bilder eingestellt hast.
Die Erebien sind 'meine Spezialgattung' und daher freue ich mich über dieses scharfe Bild
von Erebia ligea.
Schöne Grüße, Peter

Wonderful realisation this lovely capture. Sharp, great colors.
Good job1

Hello Dietrich,
Although you used a compact camera photo is very good. Bg isn't enough blurred but sharpness is perfect and colours also. Pose is very nice.
Regards, Pawel
