This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Wednesday Challenge: Support.
As is frequently the case with me I took a sideways look at the prompt. Because the first thing that came to mind on reading the prompt was camera tripods.
I am possibly something of a rarity these days in that I still frequently use a tripod or other form of camera support.
Using my home made ground pod allows me to support a telephoto lens while getting down to eye level with birds and mammals.
