The Things my Son-in-Law Shot
While on vacation, my new son-in-law used a nifty telephoto lens and a wine-soaked napkin to take a picture of something he thought was cool. Guess what?
- My daughter as she sun-bathed. The wine was to get her sleepy enough to close her eyes and recline.
- A raccoon. He tempted it with wine, then shot pictures as it approached.
- A howler monkey. Turns out howler monkeys love wine!
- A moth. He caught it under a glass, then slid in the wine-soaked napkin to get it drunk enough to stay still. After a while, it was still enough to be drunk or dead, then he lifted the glass and started taking pictures.
Answer: 4. Yup. Though he’s getting his Ph. D. in chemistry, he thought long and hard about being an entomologist. So all things bug fascinate him. Here are two of the cool pictures he took! And by the way, the moth recovered just fine, though we did ask him why he was contributing to the inebriation of an innocent moth!
But you if you answered any of the other possibilities, you’d be somewhat right. He took pictures of all of those things and there was wine involved with his wife, but not the monkeys or raccoons.
So what about you? Ever take a telephoto picture? (I haven’t. It’s hard enough to just point and click)
