All the ducks were little motorboats zipping through the view finder. We are lucky to see them let alone get a picture.

I usually don’t care for fancy expensive equipment to take photos but I sure liked looking through and taking pictures with this big scope. This is what we saw without it.

Thanks to everyone who gave me very good feedback on my Muse photo last week I’m keeping the sign.

  2. An added challenge to the challenge, Carol. I am envisioning those little ‘motorboat’ ducks and how hard it must have been for you to photograph them. You did a good job.

    One question: Did you just put your phone up to the shooting scope and focus/shoot, or was there a mount to hold the iPhone in place while you took your photos?
