Insect on Paper

Photograph by Ankit Mavchi, My Shot

Taken during an exam night, when I was reading notes and all of sudden saw this small insect sitting on one of my notes, and as usual my camera (Canon Powershot A470) was lying beside me. I waited a while for this insect to move into the perfect position so that I could click it. Finally he stood at this point, which was the best I could get, as it flew away after the shot was taken.

Photo Tip: If you find an insect or small creature that allows you to get close to it, start shooting! When making macro photographs—especially of moving subjects—be prepared. Make sure all your camera settings are correct because you may only get one shot.
