Took this photograph just before Christmas. It wasn’t until I was editing it that I noticed he was standing on one leg. Not sure if he is missing the other leg or if he just was standing on one. Since I’ve seen and photographed him before I checked some of the earlier photographs and he was only on one leg then also. I think he is missing a leg.
In addition to photographing landscapes, I enjoy photographing wildlife. Birds seem easy to capture since they are in the open the most. I photographed these two at a local park.
This was taken the same day as the previous post, and again with my new lens. Saw this group of Mallards resting new a lake in the city that I live. Not sure if these two are actually a couple, more than likely they are.
So I got a new toy, lens, and had to try it out. So last night I went to my local park hoping to get some photographs and I caught this guy in a tree over the creek. In addition to trying out the lens I wanted to see how far I could push the ISO on my camera. Typically I would not shoot at this high of an ISO, but because I did not have a tripod, I had to keep a high shutter speed to avoid the blur from not being able to hold the lens steady. Overall I was impressed with the sharpness and the low noise.
Another picture from our trip to Maine in 2017. While there we took a cruise with Bass Harbor Island Cruises and saw these Double-crested Cormorants along with other wildlife. This is one of many I took of this nesting area.
