Linda Deith has a new camera. We surprised her on one of her strolls trying out her fun toy, and were so pleased when she referred us to her photos on her Flicker site and told this story, illustrated by her photos below: "I've been enjoying spending time in the Preserve the past few days. With my camera and binoculars strapped on, I find I see more than when I leave them behind. Although not always—the pictures of the hawk are somewhat amusing when it launched itself into the air. There is the crisp shot of it raising its wings for flight, then three hopelessly blurry pictures of it flying towards me. Happily, I pulled my camera away from my face in time to watch it swoop past, perhaps 10 feet away and just above eye level. The great-horned owl, spotted courtesy a mob of crows, made me laugh when I looked at it through binoculars. How could you not, between its feathered “horns” being blown forward by the wind and that intense no-nonsense look in its eyes."
