Most of what I capture in the lens is a fraction of a second. Working with such tight tolerances has given me an appreciation for how fluid a moment is. It takes less than one second for the bumblebee to disappear inside of the flower and change the entire scene. It also takes less than one second for the bumblebee to drop out of the flower and become airborne. Again changing the scene. Light changes, wind moves the subjects and with wildlife there’s a pretty good chance that the subject will be spooked and run away. All of this forces us to see the moment and react before it’s lost forever. That’s going to happen and it’s going to happen often. Action is always faster than reaction. But on the other side of this paradox is the fact that a missed moment is an event that is also constantly changing. If we become mentally trapped by the lost opportunity we’ll miss the one that follows. The truth is that it takes a lot of missed shots to learn the patterns and anticipate the next opportunity. I have come to understand that this is a pattern repeats itself in almost every aspect of life. It takes a lot of failure to learn the patterns and recognize the next opportunity in time to be ready for it. And, if you mess up don’t get discouraged because that moment will soon pass too.
