Hepatic Tanager, Female


Here’s the reason why we take photos.

Someone sent me an e-mail (with a photo) asking if there was any way to improve the “blurry” photo.

I wrote back a few suggestions.

And she replied with thanks plus a comment that touched my heart. It was, “I laugh each time I see this photo.”

There’s an important message here that explains why we take photos.

Everyone likes their photos. In fact, everyone finds some special message in their photos.

So the next time someone shows you a photo that they took, be kind.

Admire it. Praise it. Enjoy it.

In fact, imagine that you took that photo and that you were showing it to a friend.

What would you want to hear?

I’m sure it’s praise.

For example, the above photo is the best photo that I have of a Hepatic Tanager, Female.

And yes, I know it’s a crummy photo.

But I’m keeping this photo because I laugh each time I see it.

Much success,

Steve Kaye
