[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A sunny beautiful day at the cottage sitting out on the deck enjoying the sun and the fresh northern air. i saw this little inch worm making his way down the Muskoka chair, so i got out the camera and snapped one just as he was making his next step. i think i captured his position very well. It makes me realized even more no matter how good or bad of a photographer you are when shooting nature your just capturing a moment in time.

Hi Zac, I love that picture. The B&W is real nice too and this zen moment shows us very well the scale where this tiny worm lives in. The light is great and the background is lovely. It adds an intimate touch. The dof is superb too to go with your subject. Your notes are simple and so true. I just read that Cartier-Bresson's "frozen moment" really meant any moment captured in a photo, not only something ultra special... just like your simple moment here. Thank you to share this wonderful moment,
