Heron Studies the Sunset

Yellow-crowned Night Heron studies the sunset

This is called taking a picture at prime focus through a telescope. Instead of focusing through any kind of lens the 8-inch telescope mirror is focused directly onto the surface of the 35mm film. I was focusing on his eye which is the only point in the image in sharp focus. He was looking into the a forlorn sort of way, it seemed. -- Dalton Hammond
