CommentThere are sounds beyond human hearing and sights beyond human vision.

Here, a lens, a camera, a tripod, and several sets of software mediate what we can see of a Grey Teal swimming.

This image reminds me that my photographic equipment is both a magic window that enables me to see infinitely more of birds than I could ever hope to see with my natural eyes, and a series of physical and digital prisms that help form and limit my understanding what I am seeing.
