Midway Albatross Count: Day 13

Capturing pictures of albatrosses in flight is not easy with my Canon G9 pocket camera, as much as I love its convenience and quality. “Slow” is an apt description of the focusing speed—and, hence, lag—between the time when I depress the shutter button and when the shutter actually takes the picture. Albatross simply fly too fast for my camera to focus.  I’ve learned to click off about as many frames on my camera as trigger pulls on my paint gun, and thanks to digital technology, I don’t have to conserve film. But I get a lot of these kinds of pictures.
