early - a nine year olds first attempt
During an attempt to
photograph the "problem Redpoll" I had in my garden work called on the
phone and I wandered off to deal with it. My nine year old daughter
asked if she could borrow the camera and telescope and went off into
On downloading later that evening I found these pictures on the camera.
She had set up, focused and done everything herself. Finding a spot
where lots of birds were visiting and
staying put on that was a good idea too. I'll have to ask her how she
got the notoriously
difficult autofocus to work...
If she managed this on her first attempt at nine then it looks like
there'll be some serious competition in the near future. At least I'll
know where to find my scope and camera.....
