Deathwatch

I take a lot of macros.

One day I was in my field taking pictures of insects on the ground. The insects are moving and I'm slowly crawling on my belly trying to get the perfect shot. I'm looking for an interesting pose, a pleasant background, a good lighting angle, all the while trying to cope with a razor thin Depth of Field.

I'm thrashing about for about 1/2 an hour when I look up for the first time and notice a flotilla of turkey buzzards circling overhead. I'm amazed to see so many circling so low and wonder what they are after.

Then it dawns on me.
