The Best Photo My Camera Took For Me

Challenge #1 in the Technology Enabling Art series. Hosted by ProfHankD.
Challenge has finished
This challenge is for photos that you caused to be taken, but not by looking at a viewfinder or live display and pressing the shutter button when you wanted the picture taken. It might be that you set the self timer or used a wireless remote control so you could be in your photo, or it might be that the camera was triggered by motion detection to capture lightning (as many CHDK users do) or wildlife on a trail, or perhaps you selected one of a long sequence of shots automatically taken by a head-mounted sport camera or a camera hanging down from a kite.

I selected the macro mode, held the camera close to my eye and pushed the trigger. I did not see what I was trying to shoot: it's not possible to rotate my camera's screen and I did not use a mirror, either, so I had to take several shots before I got what I wanted. I cropped the result & adusted curves a bit.
