Little green guy Little green guy by Sudipto Sarkar is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Unported License. So, I was writing my journal entry at 1 am before going to sleep, and I see this green little stinkbug, barely 8mm in size. Ironically, it had turned up earlier in the evening, when it disappeared before I could get the camera. This time, I wasn’t gonna miss it. I ran to get the camera. Now the first thing one has to know while photographing insects is to be dead patient. I had to run around this guy, with the lens following it. Many a times, it would climb up to the lens (I have to keep it real close to the subject when I use my close up lenses, which are real low focal length) and then I’d have to jerk it off the lens. And then finally came a time when it was walking all over the table, and after stopping at the edge, it started looking right at the camera. I couldn’t miss that opportunity. I clicked away thrice before it went into its normal routine of running around again. Two went out of focus, for my hands are shaky and I can’t really control the shutter speed except for increasing the ISO sensitivity. And although the increase in ISO made it grainy, the little green guy is still the cutest.
