An amazing little thing we would’ve missed had we driven a car instead of riding our bikes today.

I know this isn’t exactly bike related (well, maybe it is), but how do you get such nice crisp focus on your macro shots? You’re not carting a tripod around on your bike, are you?
I cycle (a little) on my Bacchetta Cafe and takes photos (a little) with my Olympus E-500. I enjoy both aspects of your blog very much.

These recent shots are all hand held, though I do occasionally use the bike as a brace to steady the camera. I’ve considered carrying a small monopod, though I haven’t found it necessary so far.
My camera is a Canon S3 IS. I’m no expert, but the S3′s image stabilization (IS) feature probably plays a role. I use spot metering/focus for still shots, and I always set the camera to ISO 80 which keeps the graininess to a minimum.
