Dig It!

I was talking with a couple of friends at Trinity Park today when one of them noticed what appeared to be small puffs of smoke at our feet. Looking closer it turned out to be a wasp burrowing in the dirt. I tried a couple of macro shots and did get the wasp, but not the clouds it was creating. Either the puffs were too faint for my camera to record or I just missed capturing them before they drifted apart. (Time lag is indeed a problem with a compact digital camera.) Also, I was shooting at around 1/60th of a second so maybe my shutter wasn’t closing fast enough to catch the flying dust. (And for any tech geeks who need additional details: aperture F4, ISO 100; Canon PowerShot A540 at wide angle, macro mode.)
