This from Iain MacLeod:
While pulling off I-93 at Exit 24 in Ashland (heading for work) yesterday, a Peregrine banked low over my truck. I pulled over and found the bird perched on top of a light pole beside the exit ramps. I snapped a bunch of digiscope images. Nice adult bird.
Best excuse for being late to work I've seen in ages :)
And when isn't getting the perfect shot not a good reason to be late for work?! I can't even guess how many times I have been late to something or other because I had to get my camera and catch *that* shot. Photos are captures of fleeting moments. There is no such thing as, "Well, I'll come back later and grab it," unless you are in a studio or other controled environment.
Hats off to late photographers everywhere!
