"So what do you use to get all those squirrel closeups, Henry?" I am sometimes asked. Here's what: 1. A backyard deck with a wide top railing. 2. Lots of bird seed. 3. A heated bird bath. 3. A Pentax K20D. 4. A Sigma APO 135-400mm telephoto lens. 5. A lightweight tripod atop a table. 6. A back window. 7. A bottle of Windex and a roll of paper towels to keep the window clean. Now you know.
