    I think i'll go for that fishie trick to lure that black cap out right in front of my lens...

    If i don't get that black cap, i'll probably move to Florida where the birds are right next to you...just kidding...

    Garion, this is the text from the pages of the Magazine:

They'd wiggle their heads to mimic a swimming bird, then grab any waterfowl that landed nearby. We couldn't stay long, however. By police order all boats - including the one we were on - had to be onshore by sunset or else we'd be sitting ducks for the bandits that came out after dark. I asked our machine-gun toting guard that would hapen if were were attacked. "Either I am lucky or they are lucky," he replied. Lucky for me, we never found out.

    Wow that is a really interesting read! They say a picture is worth more than a thousand words, but the story that goes behind making each picture can be equally as fascinating. Thanks for sharing, sehsuan.
