Fun with small digital cameras

Posted by Optics Blog Experts on

Sometimes you just gotta be in the right place at the right time to get that special pic. I was traveling back from a vaction in the mountains of northern Pennsylvnia and had pulled off into a rest area on I-80 near Snowshoe, Pa. It was a beautiful, though very cool, morning and I was aching to get out of the car and stretch my legs, so I took a liesurely walk, sipping the free coffee being offered to travelers. That’s real hospitaility, by the way. Thank-you, Pennsylvania.

Anyway, not being in a rush to get back to the car, I plopped down at a picnic table. A moment later, this guest joined me. Since I just happened to have my Pentax optio A10 digital camera, I got a close up as my guest was warming itself under the sun’s rays. (That’s the beauty of a small digital camera – it’s there when you need it.) According to my book, my guest was a Red-Spotted Purple Admiral, but in my book, it was also gorgeous. Couldn’t ask for better company.

Talk about a friendly state.
