The one that got away

So earlier today, I was driving with my mom, and we saw two amazing ecological moments. For one, we saw a bald eagle on an urban lake near our house which was trying to hunt some loons. On top of that, we saw what we are both convinced was a pair of whooping cranes. However, my phone was dead, and her phone’s camera is essentially a mute point.

So, since I want some catharsis in my pain, what amazing ecological moments have you missed documenting because of technological problems?

Here are the pictures for reference.


There’s a thread about lost opportunities, let me check it’s name.
Here it is, it would be cool if mods opened it back.


Thank you! I’m new to the forum, so I don’t know much abut the historical posts.

3 posts were merged into an existing topic: Anyone else miss a chance to document a truly epic observation?

There’s also this thread too.


At least you have one heck of a story to go along with it though.

Thanks to you as well!

Couldn’t they all be merged in one topic?

Yes, and they now have. Was on my phone earlier and just wanted to move this out of #general.
