Enjoying the sun

Enjoying the sun


Canon 5D, ISO 100, 1/25sec, f/10, 100mm


This was taken in my yard, on a peony flower. I guess the bugs like the undeveloped buds, because I can always find some ants just sitting there. Perfect for macros, since they do not move a lot. The problem becomes when there is even a little breeze. Because the buds are heavy, the whole plant swings like there is a tornado. So finally one morning it was very quiet, no wind, and I spotted this little fellow enjoying himself on the flower bud. Again, I guess I will never learn, to think things through before taking a photo. I should have increased the iso, lower the aperture to f/5, to get a higher shutter speed. Then again I was in a hurry, and this was incidental. This is what happens if I don't think. Thoughts?
