Critters Leica Photo

Snout Sunning

Ha! It’s an unexpected follow-up post. In the last one, a dinosaur looms over Morla. This afternoon, while walking past her yard, I spotted something on the dino’s snout. I unslung the Leica M (Typ 262) with Summarit-M 1:2.4/50 lens and started snapping. Oh, the embarrassment! The focus is off—and outrageously so—for nearly all the shots, which will be discarded.

Of all the moments to miss. I rudely stepped into the driveway, along the fence, and over the tortoise as she sunned. The lizard on the dino decor could have been classic! But at least there is something preserved. But the blurry throwaways could have presented some lovely close-crops, if properly focused. Oh the shame! Vitals, for the Featured Image, aperture manually set: f/11, ISO 200, 1/250 sec, 50mm; 12:36 p.m. PDT.
