Damn – six inches to the left and that would’ve been a great shot.

Almost all the daytime pictures the game camera takes are of birds, and almost all of them are very unremarkable – small brown bird sits on watering trough, ho hum. But because there are so many pictures of birds, some of the birds are in flight and a picture of a flying bird caught at the right moment and from the right angle can be very beautiful. But since this is a consumer-grade trail camera randomly taking pictures of moving objects, the pictures always manage to miss qualifying for the cover of Field & Stream.

Example…


I could have cropped that mockingbird into something worth keeping, even with the poor light…


…if only it were entirely in the frame. Sigh.
