Dale Forbes, with whom I was lucky enough to travel to Kazakhstan this past May (that’s him in the sunset picture in the linked post), now works directly for Swarovski Optik.  As part of his job duties he has a series of videos up on YouTube in which he gives digiscoping tips (I know, I know, the poor guy is being worked far too hard).  The tips are solid and the videos are made even more interesting by the subject matter.  Digiscoping is fun but when hippopotami are involved the enjoyment kicks up a whole extra notch!

As helpful as the digiscoping tips are I enjoyed the “Power of Digiscoping” video even more, mostly because I was there when Dale made it (you can even see me in the beginning)!

So get on over to YouTube and subscribe to Dale’s channel…you won’t regret it!

A note: though Swarovski Optik was kind enough to sponsor 10,000 Birds by providing Swarovski equipment to we three bird bloggers this post would have been been written regardless.  Dale is a good guy and his videos are cool.  So go look at them.
