uh huh, it's a confirmed "submarine sighting".
Let's face it, we have a bear on "predator-free" Gabriola Island, and now, submarines are cruising by. It certainly would be fun to get a picture of the bear. (Well..."fun" probably isn't the word.) It would be fortuitous get a picture of the bear but we don't really want to get all that close. And we can't get much closer to the sub. Even in the kayaks, propelled by a couple of superb Greenland paddles, it's got us beat - so yeah, we definitely need a longer lens.
I think I've finally justified a small photographic upgrade.
Oh, Joan, I was just wondering... :)
