The Muffed Target #18

The Muffed Photo Meme is sponsored by Thom “Bite Me” Robinson, and can be found every Tuesday (actually usually as early as Monday afternoon) on his blog, Thom’s Place 4 Well, Whatever. Believe me, this meme really fits in his “well whatever” category:

Each Tuesday post a completely crazy, messed up photo — one you would normally delete. The subject matter isn’t important — did you take a picture of your thumb? The lens cap? The wrong half of great Aunt Betty? (Really, she usually has a head …) Or perhaps you’ve got a shot of your own nose hairs taken while you were trying to determine why the flash wasn’t working. Whatever your photo goof is, we want to see it!

So, let’s all expose our photo flubs. You show me yours and I’ll show you mine!


No explanation necessary. Poorly focused.


  1. The wasp looks so close to the camera. I’m amazed to see all her details even though it got blurred. I also love to see her shadow. Wishing you all the best for 2011, Quilly. May even more joy and bliss come into your life 🙂

  2. Okay I’ve got to say it the only thing wrong with this photo I thought was it’s upside down. LOL I mean yes the outside around the wasp is blurry but other than I’d be proud of it. Thanks for playing.

  3. Eooww! In focus enough to creep me out…insects, though beautiful in construction, are one of my basic fears in the world. Would have been a great shot outside of the focus. You have a terrific eye for composition Quilly. : )

    1. DJ Kathy — thank you. I once had a professional stop me from taking formal classes. He said if I didn’t want to go pro, all the knowledge would do is mess up my natural instincts and mold me into a business photographer rather than an artist.

    1. Gigi — living in Hawaii makes it easy to hate bugs. I don’t mind them outside where they belong, but I detest them in my home!

  4. What a great idea. I’m sure that I have some terrible pictures still hiding in my memory. I hit delete pretty quickly — LOL! Maybe I’ll take a look through…

    Happy 2011!


    1. Karen — a zoom lens it was, but I still stood pretty close. I am allergic to bees, but wasps don’t bother me. It is a different type of venom.
