Lone photographer, continued
This about as close as I wanted to get to Kit Taylor, for fear that I would do something irrational, like taking that camera away from him. In the two days he spent at the Bosque, he kept it in macro mode, which produces pictures like I've never seen before. I pointed out a colony of army ants bivouacking in a fallen palm tree to him this morning. As we got ready to return to Santarem, he showed me some of the shots. He could actually zero in on the eyes of the ants! Gee, I'd be dangerous with a camera like that.
