A few years ago, as I looked ahead to retirement, I bought my first good camera: a DSLR equipped with a telephoto and macro lens. My plan? To take kick-ass photos of birds.
Fast forward a few years and I have a new appreciation of many things:
- How much there is to learn
- What I can (and, mostly, can’t) accomplish with a camera that I can actually carry around and hold steady
- How quickly most birds move
- How wonderful it is that there are some birds that move slowly or that hardly move at all
