A 4-Year Old Can Do This - 14 Apr 2016

Robin and I had the opportunity to babysit our 4-yr GrandNephew Sam and his 14-mo old Sister, Sloane this evening. When we weren't playing soccer, playing football, hanging out by the pond, or looking for (hiding) Buffy and Asia, we were watching the birds at the feeder.

I had my Nikon D7100, 300/2.8 VRII + 1.7TCII set up on the Jobu Jr. Gimbal Head and Tripod in the  sunroom here at Brownton Abbey, and Sam wanted to take some pictures. So, I let him loose. 750 photos later he had some impressive images. Most were blurry - he hasn't learned what the term focus means, but he was able to track some birds and even get some enviable photos.  So, this Guest Blog is dedicated to Master Sam Geiger:

Our first yard Eastern Bluebird checked out the nest box, and Sam got photos of it in flight!

This kid may have a future.  Well done, Sam!
