Christine Thomas catches the ‘shutter’ bug with nature photography

The photo of this robin represents Christine Thomas’ very first technically correct and “up close” wildlife photo after renting three trial cameras. She is now using a Sony A6700 with a Sony G 70 to 350 mm lens. (Photo by Christine Thomas)

“I think you should rent some cameras and lenses to see what you like,” advised my daughter, Shannon Honl. “Do some Internet research, read some reviews, and rent something you think you want to purchase.”
She was responding to my inquiry about what camera I should think about buying. I have been frustrated that I have not been able to get better wildlife shots with my cell phone. I like that I always have my phone handy, that it is light and uncomplicated, and that I can easily share photos from it. I do not like that I do not have the reach I need for birds and other critters.
