There is an old saying in photography circles. The best camera is the one that you have with you. You might have a big fancy DSLR with all the bells and whistles, but if you don’t have it on you when that moment happens, the cell phone cam wins.
Such was the case yesterday. I stepped out the back of the warehouse and heard this crazy cacophony of duck sounds. I looked up and saw row after row of ducks going somewhere. It would have been great to have one of my Canons to get that shot with, but there I was with just my Motorola phone on hand. So, this photo isn’t as good as it could be, but it is a far sight better than no photo at all.
It got me curious about which bird migrates the farthest. It turns out, it is the Arctic tern. They breed on the shores of the Arctic Ocean in the Northern Hemisphere summer, and then make their way to to the oceans of the Southern Hemisphere for the other half of the year. It’s the bird version of Endless Summer.
