Beyond Human Perception

Challenge #4 in the Technology Enabling Art series. Hosted by ProfHankD.
Challenge has finished
Most of the photos people take use the camera to capture what people see; the challenge is to capture things that a person normally would NOT be able to see. The subject might be unseen because it is imaged in NIR (near infrared), happens too quickly (use a fast shutter or flash) or too slowly (use a long exposure or time lapse stacking) for human perception, is seen from a place your camera can go but you can't, etc.

IR shot, the interesting for me is the motion of the birds and the stillness of the logs. The wood structure is totally different than the one in visible light.
