Jan 23: Two Series

On a very chilly morning (I had to wear a jacket), I went out for a drive with the camera. I had the telephoto lens with me.

I didn’t go far, because I needed to buy stamps and they weren’t open yet, but I did get some interesting pics at two different lakes.

The first series shows how powerful the telephoto lens is. I’ll start with the original photo. What do you see worth taking a picture of?

In case you missed it, here’s a crop of the area I focused on. That’s a palm warbler. It jumped around a lot, but I managed to get a couple “good enough” shots of it. That telephoto lens got me close enough to get an acceptable picture of a small bird.

This is what it looks like after processing.

The second series is a little different. For one thing, the light was completely wrong, but I still liked the results. I was at a second lake and saw a red-winged blackbird in a marshy patch of grass.

He saw me, too.

He got nervous and took flight. The sun spots add an interesting touch, don’t you think?

I never know what I’m going to see when I’m looking for subjects. 🙂

See you next time.
