I have been doing amateur wildlife photography for 35 years, but only two
years ago broke down and went digital. Although a long-time hold out for
film, I find the advantages of digital far outweigh the disadvantages. Being
a little ADD, I usually find myself in the stalker mode of wildlife
photography. While being an avid bird watcher for most of the last 35 years,
I am much more interested in good photographs than in lists. Lists seem a
lot like work.
I live in Price but spend a lot of time in Wayne County. I love Bicknell
Bottoms, Spring Creek, and Capitol Reef NP. While on the trail of a bird, I
can easily be distracted to take a photo of a wildflower, varmint, deer, or
my dog. I freely admit my identification skills could be much better and I
am downright horrible at sound identification.
I use Nikon cameras with a 300mm lens, a 70-200mm lens, and teleconverters.
