What kind of a Macro Photographer would I be, if I didn’t have some close and personal encounters with the subjects I photograph?
Some months ago, I was on macro safari at some local nature park, and suddenly, this guy just flew straight into my left eye, and when I closed it on reflex, he started to move around under my eyelid.
I was in a real panic, being alone on a trail and with no idea what had just crashed into my my eye! I hoped it didn’t have a stinger or a chemical defense!
Wildly I dug into my eye, trying to squeeze it out as fast as I could, and I think the damage I had later on was from my own fingernail, more than from the fight he put up.
Thankfully nothing happened, but it was a little painful and mostly VERY scary!
1cm of scared insect is very uncomfortable!
My eye is sore, but truly, this guy got the lousy end of the deal, killed by the big macro photographer…
