... animals are so far away that you have to use them for all the shots and of course I have trouble holding it still and then the shots aren’t as crisp as they should be. I think though, we had the smallest zooms on the bus. Some people have some really expensive equipment and they have to carry it around all the time.

... eye for something moving nearby. Jayson was most interesting in his commentary during the tour. One thing he was saying is that a Caribou is loved by the mosquitoes and a particular fly in the area and the mosquitoes can extract 16 oz of blood in a day. There is only 1 frog that inhabits the area....a Wood Frog, during the winter it burrows and beginning with limbs gradually shuts down and almost ...
