On my hike yesterday I saw the biggest buck I have yet seen in the four years of wanderings around my personal State Park. He saw me before I saw him. He simply stood motionless waiting for me to pass and it was just pure dumb luck that I spotted him. Naturally, no DSLR with me. All I had was my little point and click. I never can see very good what I have in the screen of that camera. I got two pictures and...
...the battery died! I had meant to grab a spare before leaving the car and forgot. Now what? I dug out that infernal iPhone. If I thought trying to hold the zoomed in point and click steady bracing it against a tree was difficult, the iPhone was even worse.
First picture shows how far away he was.
Second picture you could compare to documented pictures of Big Foot we see all the time.
He realized he was dealing with an ill-prepared incompetent amateur photographer and didn't want to waste anymore time posing for me so he went on his way. And so did I grumbling about forgetting that spare battery.
