Kongo relearned another valuable photography lesson on this trip. If you’re going to shoot pictures of birds, you need a tripod or a monopod. If they are standing perfectly still and you stand perfectly still you can get a good photo but Kongo wishes he had not sent his monopod home with Mrs. Kongo from New York. Never again! It’s a pain to lug around on a business trip but if you can carve out a few hours here and there to go picture hunting you need the right stuff.
Travel safe. Have fun.
