The local Osprey hawk came by this morning with breakfast (a fish). He/she likes to sit on the edge of the roof outside our bedroom.
I wish it wasn’t so cloudy. This would’ve looked great against a blue sky showing off the feathers.
Image was taken with Canon 70D and Canon 100-400mm L II zoom.
Do you need a smile?
Checkout this happy bird. Almost looks as if he/she is smiling.
Doing more testing of my new lens, Canon 100-400mm L II, and loving it.
Here is a gator that visits a few times aweek in the cancel behind our condo.
I love the texture and detail this lens gets. Very sharp.
Where have you been all my life? Lol.
I’ve added an HDR effect to bring out the detail in the skin.
This reminds me of a little gator saying:
“It’s not that difficult to tell alligators and crocodiles apart.
One will see you in a while whereas the other will see you later.”
I just received my new lens, Canon 100-400mm L II. These were my first shots. I went out behind our condo and there was a lot of activity today. Birds and gator.
I kept my eye on the gator as I was photographing the birds. I didn’t want to be surprised.
Anyway, I’m happy so far with the lens. Just need to get used to the size and weight of it.
We had a visitor this past weekend.
A full grown red-shouldered hawk. He/she hung out for a few minutes.
Gave me enough time to shoot a few frames.
I took this image a few months ago. Yesterday I was playing around and came up with this new “fairy tale” look.
What do you think?
This is near the top, or summit, or Pikes Pike.
I got of my car to take this image. Fog rolled in very quickly. I took 3 shots and then they were completely fogged out. Got there just in time.
We had a visitor today. Don’t they come out at night?
This one must be special.
We had 2 days of snow/ice.
Here is an image from the horse farm down the road from us.
Look at him checking me out.
I took this where I used to work, Fitch.
I was about 10 feet away. Close enough.
