The beauty of re-imagining through the digital eyes.This wouldn't be an exception when I go on admitting that the high resolution cameras have changed the ways in which we have been perceiving with the things around us which were not possible only a few decades back. The improved mechanisms along with the powerful software tools have contributed a lot in this area. If you don't believe this then request you to pl. review again with your experiences which you referred as surprisingly remarkable simply because those were never possible through our naked eyes.
The instances in order to prove my stand would be numerous but taking one example of building-up of a nest would be worth considering at this point. Any nest for its completion takes days of efforts but we can be evident of the progress of different stages in just a few seconds. In India the major viewership is with the Cricket but the experience of watching the ball in a slow motion & from different angles which in actual may have the speed of up to 150 KM per Hour, could be an exciting as well. There are insects, animals & birds which is not reachable often but still we are able to get into their insights with never told stories & details etc.
One of the fact of our life is that we create an impression of a certain entity in our mind on the basis of the different ways in which we look at those & to the current context the science & the technology is responsible for a remarkable job.
