Default a delicate flower and moth

I was shooting this water flower from a dock with the 70-300mm on my E-Pl2.

this is a crop of a shot taken with the camera in A mode and set it to f8, 1/200 ISO 800. I was sitting, legs crossed w/the camera resting in my lap, using the vf-2 at 90 degrees I found this an easy way to take steady shots.

in my bag: e-m1, 7-14mm pro, 14-54mm mk ii, 50-200mm mk i, 70-300mm
in my pocket: e-pm2 lumix 12-32

Shutter speed too slow to get much sharpness without a tripod. If at 300mm, I would choose 1/600 minimum. My rule of thumb is double the focal length for minimum shutter speed for most applications.
