    You have a primary set of three legs? I think that only describes roughly half of the wildlife photographers, though in ego only. The actual number observed to be possessing a primary set of three legs is far greater than the number that think they do. Most attempt to make up for this shortcoming with ever bigger telephoto lenses. I’m assuming that’s the case with the “wildlife photographer” that paid $2M for the 1600mm Leica lens overseas.

    W, you misread my post where I indicated the primary “pair” of legs. At any rate, you could be correct in the assumption that many photographers possess egos as big as their lenses. And I won’t even begin to speculate on the matter of equipment based compensation for any number of shortcomings. Hey wait… I have some pretty big lenses too! 😉 At any rate, thanks for reading! -D

    Brilliant, I’m on the floor in stitches reading this Dan..! And it’s all so true…!

  • I keep reading and rereading this article and just love it. Best part is about the camouflage lenscovers!

    Excellent!

    I have the big super-telephoto lens (a Nikon AF-S II 600mm f/4 D IF-ED, but I only have a monopod. Does this mean that I’m a slightly deficient species of wildlife photographer? ~evil grin~
