    Can't think of one particular moment but many have involved my cat.:cat:

    She does ridiculously bizarre things and i keep missing them.

    The only way to capture them, ive concluded, would be to have my camera surgically attached to my head.

    Unfortuaantely this raises its own set of problems. Including ridicule and musculatory problems in the upper back and neck.

    I've missed so many in the past that I don't go anywhere without my camera now. I don't want to miss any more. :D

    Ditto, it was a lot easier with my compact digital but since I'm not so keen on it anymore I'm taking my SLR everywhere, even to work in case of a good shot on the way!! :mrgreen:

    I carry two bags with me (one with the D70 and N70 and the other with lenses) to work and they sit in my office, locked away most of the day. Sometimes I go out to the cemetary next to the building and take pictures of graves or the frogs in the pond. That's also just in case. :D

    Well, I don't know if I've missed anything life-altering. ;) BUT - just last night I was sitting on the patio and suddenly a hummingbird appeared in front of me - not 2 feet away. I froze so he'd hang around, and he was definitely checking me out, moving up and down, tilting his head - almost scratching his head. I think I looked strange to him in my lime-colored t-shirt. :lol:

    He then flitted over to the feeder and took a long drink, allowing me plenty of time to set up and fire off some good images. He would have been a perfect capture - IF I'd been sitting out there with the camera at the ready. :x

    :slaps hand on forehead:

    Just had one of those last night at the St. Louis Cardinals game...Edmonds caught an AMAZING catch, right after I had just finished taking a different shot and put my camera away since it was a few moments before time to leave :(

    Me too! I've always got a camera with me. I like to bring my 10D but it's in a big backpack and I get tired of carrying it around. So, I'll just grab one of the point and shoots and bring that along instead. :mrgreen:
