I was sitting on my porch, feeling sorry for myself. I lost my camera to a recent break-in. Then I saw first one then three or four silver-spotted skippers. Two landed on a decorative paving brick that someone gave us sometime back.
I took their photo with my cell phone. It was not the same as with the SLR camera. There is something viscerally pleasing about using a good camera with a fixed focal length macro lens. Still, I enjoyed the exercise.
Sooner or later I will be buying another good camera. Until then, I do have an option.
