And He Said it Couldn't Be Done...
Yesterday we went kayaking in a mangrove forest. In one of the open areas, yellow-tailed snapper were jumping out of the water. Judi raised her camera.
"You can try to get a picture of one," our guide said, "but you're not going to be able to. Lots of people have tried, and no one's ever done it."
Judi explained how, at the Butterfly Farm in St. Maarten, they had told us it was impossible to get a picture of one electric-blue butterfly with its wings open, and that no one had ever done it, but she did.
"Try if you want," said the guide skeptically.
