Valley Views: Local photographers aim their cameras outdoors
Arcadia Wildlife Sanctuary, Easthampton
Photograph and text by Anne Ely of South Hadley
I love going to Arcadia Wildlife Sanctuary in Easthampton when I want to find birds to photograph. This white-breasted nuthatch was making his way, upside down as usual, down a tree trunk when he stopped right in front of me at eye level. I knew he would be gone in a flash, so I didn’t waste time, and clicked the shutter on my digital SLR camera which had a long telephoto lens. A tripod helped to steady the camera.
