Refuel!

The Sigma DP3 Merrill isn’t the best camera for shooting action or freezing motion, especially on a dull day. But it still proved  better than the second hand superzoom I’d bought for the trip, and soon thrown into the undergrowth in frustration.

Most shots ended in blurred undergrowth with just a rumour of a squirrel, but once or twice they kindly paused to allow the Merrill to catch up.
