I have a lot of experience with unusual technics...

Dozens of shots with all modalities, even flashlight between my teeth to have both hands on my camera, which was not really a good idea, the light was all over the place but not on the banana. BTW, where exactly were the bananas in complete darkness? And where was the bat, when I finally focused the bananas? ;-)...

Ah well great picture whoever the fingers belong to :-) I thought they could have been yours: I tried hand-held, one-hand macro shots with sort-of-OK results:

These are not my fingers ;-)... Probably more sweat than fruits and at least no insect repellent...!
