Photography vs. snapshotting (and a cool dove)

Before he left San Antonio this afternoon, my friend Ramesh wanted to go looking for birds to shoot – with his camera. We went to the Judson Nature Trails, the place that Whiltley Streiber said he saw aliens. No aliens, and actually, not many birds, although we heard a bunch of them. I took a picture of some trees. Zowee. Here we are heading for the trail.

Check out Ramesh’s camera – he didn’t need to go on a trail to take a great bird shot. When we got home, he took a fantastic photo of a dove outside the kitchen window. Now that’s the difference between a photographer and a snapshotter like me – you can even see the dang dove’s eyelid, and look at those feathers! I love this photo. Thanks, Ramesh, and happy trails home!

  1. Thanks, Lyn. The camera was Nikon D70s. Lens AF-S Nikkor 80-400 mm f4.5-5.6G ED. No flash in this case since I was indoors looking through the glass window. Sunlight was pretty good to catch the details of the feathers.

  2. Loved the exhibit and terribly missed joining y’all the next evening. Haven’t figured out how to be in two places at the same time just yet – but I will someday.
