Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken when walking along waterfront in North Bay, Ontario. I took a few shots handheld, and here is one oh them.
Time
It was during my trip to North Bay, Ontario, to visit my friends. It was early evening, I remember walking along waterfront by Nippissing Lake when this bug drew my attention. It was flying from one flower to another, and because there was lots of flowers I had enough time to set my camera and find proper spot. Had no tirpod so took a few shots trying to get proper depth of field. Most of them were not in focus but some were acceptable. Photo taken in May 19, 2013 at 6.11 PM
Lighting
Light was natural. Because it was early evening, it was close to golden hour, no high contrasts, no deep shadows.
Equipment
This was Nikon D300, with 105mm macro lens. No other equipment was involved.
Inspiration
After saving money for about 2 years I finally could afford to buy a macro lens. So it was time of discovering another world for me. Bugs, spiders, webs, flowers, etc...
Editing
I'm not crazy about post processing. Just trying to enjoy making images and to get as much as possible from shoting.
In my camera bag
My only camera is Nikon D300. Usually I pack Nikkor 24-70 and Nikkor 70-200, plus polarizer and ND filters. For portraits I use Nikkor 50mm 1.4 prime. And my tripod: Manfrotto.
Feedback
You need to be really patient, get some knowledge about bugs behaviour, which will save lots of your time. Macro is not easy due to extremly shallow depth of field and constant lack of light. A proper flash light would help but still it is possible to get good results under natural conditions.
