Dry. I'm going to shrivel up and blow away.
Okay. I did NOT shoot birds with a gun. Of course it was with a camera.
This week was another experimental week with photography. [this IS Aurora's fault! Just kidding. But she did put the thought into my head.]
I picked up a 75-300mm used lens for my Olympus camera. Some reviews are decent some reviews hate the lens. The lens is super light weight. Mere ounces. I figured to try a used lens first to see if I'd ever really want one of the 'good' pro ones.
Birds are hard! They don't stop and stay still! The lens had trouble with the clutter in the backround in the first sparrow shot.
Charlie and I took a walk on Sunday morning and visited with the black bird that yells at us each time we stop by this part of the ridge.
I took this at dawn and for some odd reason, his eyes look like they are glowing!
I think I did sort of okay.
I kid you not, getting the 'shot' took several tries. I think the biggest thrill for me is getting one good shot!
I'm going to return to KVR early in the morning to do some hiking and beat the heat. I'm hoping to get near the Trumpter Swans this time with a longer reaching lens.
The heat this past week kept me from doing a lot outside.
I did explore some new different looks for Artsy Fartsy flower photos.
They are coming up next. Extreme heat and cold drive me to extreme Arsty.
