I spent most of Saturday morning in amongst the Tall Grass and being ate alive by mosquitoes but next time it will be spray and a net. It is amazing what you find when you REALLY look.

I used a flash on most of the images but yet again, I forgot to take the lens hood off. I did some experimenting and the final results I'm not happy with, at all.

All taken with the istD and a Tamron 70-300mm. Not sure if it is me or what but the clarity does not seem to be there. All images in the Ojibway series are cropped. Here's one example.

I had thick hair and I thought I did not need a hat in the field. I was dead wrong. Two weeks ago I had two nasty bites right between the thick hair.
I went through your excellent gallery part. the "little thing" folder. Obviously all of them are better exposed than the pict below. Was it because of jpg over-compression? Or it was really underexposed or soft in the outset?

I think it is definately - underexposed.

Most of yesterday's shots were of insects hiding below foilage in thick tall grass as opposed to open area in the Little Things folder.
