How Does She Do It?

You may have asked yourself, "Self, how does Églantine take those wonderful close up photos?"



Here is the answer. Églantine gets down and crawls through the bushes on her belly like a snake. Fortunately, we have no poisonous snakes around to worry about.



Being down close to her subject, Églantine brings the camera in close and takes many, many photos. What you see here is usually one of anywhere from 20 to 120 attempts at a good photo. (And what do you do with your spare time?)

That's great. I love Eglantine's commitment. I don't climb around on the ground as much, but I do tweak my neck quite often trying to get shots of birds in trees or flying overhead.

Sometimes that is the best way to find those little tings of nature...I do the same.

RA, It's a commitment that I don't have nearly as often but sometimes it's necessary even for me.
