2015 | Richard Carstensen & Catherine Pohl | 10 seconds

Coming home from Hoonah in late April, 2015, Cathy and I swung out to the Industrial Boulevard wetland access to see how migration was progressing. She brought along her new Kowa 88mm spotscope, and although I was traveling with only the little fixed-28mm Ricoh GR that I bought for drone photography, that turned out to be the perfect combination for ‘digiscoping.’ Although we haven’t purchased an eyepiece attachment, I was able to hold the camera against the lens frame with a rubber band, taking my hands away long enough for some steady stills and video. Very cooperative migrants (straight up from a National Wildlife Refuge?) also helped.
