And then there is the close relative of this sp, the bird that sit
perfectly placidly while you creep closer and closer with a camera,
fliddling with the buttons and dials, and then flies off 2 nanoseconds
before you snap the perfect shot.

I intend to have a photographic exhibition in the near future: "Empty
Branches and Twigs", with several hundred shots.

G'day all,

Aaaah .. good !
Someone has determined the time as 2 nanoseconds !
I have practical experience that the smallest amount of measurable time is
the time from when you focus your bins
... to when the bird flies away .. never to be seen again .. and no doubt, a
bird new to science.
