A man emailed me this a.m. about my hummer photos and sent me a link to his website. Every photo on this site is amazing, but some are absolutely amazing! I told him that when I am rich and famous, I am going to buy a better digital camera. I truly miss taking the time (or having the time) to get good photos. This man must have a world of patience.
Before the world of digital photography, Dan, my hubby, felt like a pack mule. I would take my tripod, my 35mm camera and bag, the additional padded case for the big lens and usually a camcorder (again this was WAY back when so the camcorders were HUGE). Most of these excursions were in Pigeon River Forest outside of Vanderbilt, Michigan. We'd camp out in the woods, away from every one. This was usually the first 10 days of October for the opening of bow season. So not only were we carrying all this photography equipment with us, we each had our bows. Being dressed in camo from head to foot helped a lot in getting some good shots of the Michigan elk...and by shots, I mean photos. I just wish digital existed then!
At one point, I had my camera all set up on the tripod, in the woods over looking a field of rye. I had a tiny little deer get so close to me that I finally had to say "shoo" under my breath so it would get out of the range of vision of my camera. I was waiting for the elk to come out and that little deer was in the way. You can see how serious I was about hunting! No, I wouldn't even consider shooting a small deer and YES, I WAS more interested in taking pix of the elk! Anyway, Dan is appreciative of the digital cameras and the little bitty camcorders. I can be my own "pack mule" now!
