There is always another way

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.
