digital imagery

I still find it amazing just how far we have come with digital photography in such a short space of time-- this is a well cropped image of a flock of Dunlin in flight -- its not  a great image but just look at how much detail is visible in the different feather tracts of these small waders -- with a decent camera most tricky bird ID problems can now come down to a few 1000 shutter activations providing of course the bird is not hidden in the middle of a bush or 2 km out at sea
I managed to miss the 3 Curlew Sands out of the picture!

I hardly even thing about film and such. Digital has won me over completely.
