    Good Afternoon (Morning or Evening)

    I stumbled across this site while doing a whole lot of research (and thinking, what did I get myself into! lol) after falling in Guppy Love a few months ago.

    I have already learned so much from so many of the posts here, including all the newbie mistakes.. yikes!

    Also.. I fell in love with one of your members drawing of a guppy doing his special "hey look at me" dance.. and had to join!

    So.. thanks for all the help so far, I'm looking forward to constantly searching the forums for answers for a long time to come!

    Um....... I don't try very often lol! Especially because the camera I use takes a few seconds to really focus well and by then they've zipped off to another place haha! Maybe try taking a video?

    You must have a whole lot of patience! I tried for 15 minutes, and I'm worn out! Lol

    They're so active.. though, I do think I have a male guppy that's teasing me and my camera...

    Yes, it seems that sometimes they'll do that, just dance around the camera a bit and dart off right before you can capture the image lol!

    Welcome to FishLore!

    The key to the great pictures is an SLR or DSLR camera. Phone pics usually aren't too good, depending on the phone. Though, I think I have gotten some fairly decent pics with my phone! My avatar is one of them
