I’m trying out the WordPress desktop app on my Macbook Pro; I think it’s going to get deleted after this post as I don’t like how it compressed today’s photo. I’m seeing quite a bit of artifacting that is not in the original photo…maybe it’s just in this app, but I will check it in the browser before making my decision.

As for today’s photo, I saw a fly on one of my fortnight lilies while outside with my camera. The aperture was at f/1.6 and made the petal look like it was a cloud; I cropped it to a 1:1 ratio as there wasn’t much on the left hand side of the photo. To me it looks like the fly is hitching a ride on a passing cloud.
