Tackyman & Tuck the Turtle

My boys and I found this turtle next to our pond 2 weeks ago and he'e still hanging around. We decided to call him Tuck and I decided to try a lens cap trick shot.

 

Nikkor 50mm 1.4 at f/11.

Macro focus to light Tuck.

Switch camera to another tripod while covering the lens with my hand, focus to infinity.

Paint out Tackyman up the hill.

 

As you can see from the 2 flares, the moisture in the air is insane. The humidity is so thick it's stifling and the bugs are at their prime.

 

I hate that I didn't get this one together as I had wanted but I hope to get at least one more shot with Tuck in while he's sticking around. Any ideas?
