When out I rarely use a monopod, almost never a tripod. Once I carried a pack every where, I try to carry the least amount of ‘stuff’ I need now. However, a windy day or when I might be shooting extra long a monopod comes in handy. I had one this day.

This was not a particularly long shot, but I caught the right moments because I was prefocused and didn’t have to hold up heavy gear.

A slight adjustment with the focus button and I captured a landing Egret not planned for at all.

So…I shot at 10 frames a second, was prefocused and balanced on a monopod, and had a quality long lens. Sorry purists, gear does matter.
