17/365 Hoverflies

They say you should never publish any of your bad work. Is this a bad picture?

We have two trees at the bottom of our garden. In the space between them there are a bunch of five or six hover flies that gather. They are quite mesmerising to watch, and I would love to get a decent picture of them. But, the chances of doing that with a phone are slim, so I felt quite pleased with my first effort, which really was a grab shot, This kind of highlights my dilemma, I am increasingly thinking that I am going to have to get my DSLR out, and use that more than I am my phone camera.

At the moment, I am posting almost random shots. This really should be an exercise in improving my photography. How do I do that? Technically, I think I have a reasonable understanding, not perfect of course, and my DSLR isn’t really an extension of me, because I haven’t been using it much. I need to think about this.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
