Taking better bird pictures
I was given some great advice after my Northern Flicker post…
Place my camera-phone up to the binoculars to take better close-up pictures!
I have to say I skeptical because it seemed like such an easy solution and yet I didn’t think I was creative enough to figure out how to make it work! Silly, I know! How can something be both easy and hard at the same time!?
Well- I decided to give it a try and it works! It really is as simple as putting the camera up to the binocular eye-piece. But it is hard because you have to have a steady hand and lots of patience!

This is so amazing!!! I plan on practicing during these cold days – we are practically home bound due to illnesses! I’m even going to have the kids practice taking pictures this way!
A tip of my own for binocular-users that wear glasses 🤓- put your glasses on a chain so you can drop them safely and quickly off your face with one hand while grabbing for your binoculars with the other hand!!
You can get them at the dollar store!!
So fancy… LOL 😂
