I used to be a fanatical birder, but I've been distracted by other things lately -- mostly insects. Once you begin to look at everything that's alive, pretty much all you see are insects.

But they move around fast and are too far away for my close-focusing lens, which is nearly always screwed on to my camera. So I miss most of them most of the time. And the pictures that I do get, aren't much to look at.
