Found my photo shoot method

So I was trying to take some pictures of my Drogo and I was having some trouble keeping his attention so I could snap something that wasn't either completely blurry of of him turned away. I didn't have a mirror around to play with him so I was at a loss. Then I remembered reading somewhere in this fourm that betta would react to even the crudest drawings of another betta.

I grabbed some dry erase markers and did a really bad quick doodle on the glass.

Even though it's so bad, he was completely fascinated by the crappy drawing. He just stared at it for like 10 minutes with a look on his little face that I can only describe as o.0 (I don't know whether or not to feel flattered).
Like this, he just stayed in that position looking up and down the drawing until he needed to get air.

Here it seemed like he forgot it was there and he turned around and was like "Hu?!?"

What an incredibly creative idea, I love it! I may have to try this as taking good photos seems to be a most difficult, time consuming and frustrating activity. Now if I can just get rid of glare and reflection I might be all set :)

Great idea! I should try this on Ace my Male Betta, He is so hard to get a picture of because he never stays in one place!

Thanks all :)
@PiscinePeacocks I've had loads of trouble with glare and reflection too, but now I like to turn off all my lights except for the tank's light which helps a lot, and of course keep the flash off.

I use a DSLR, and I love it to death, but I really want to get a macro lens for it so I try taking some closer shots. Maybe I can find a nice lens with a super wide aperture too so I wont have to worry as much about Drogo (or my other 2 boys) staying still long enough....But this may remain as a distant dream, lenses are too stinking expensive >.<

Haha so cute!I love when bettas do that- just stare at something because they're totally fascinated by it. Shiny did that when I first put Hornwort in his tank. haha.
