I've not taken many photos lately.
But, when I do, I practice zooming in or closeup shots.
The moon last night was a fun target.
Still haven't quite got the hang of the macro, even
though some of you have emailed me trying to help.
Thank you for trying, but I'm feeling a bit like the old
dog that can't be taught new tricks.
If you saw our pond in my last post, you might spot a few bare limbs
in a tree straight back from the left edge of the pond. This eagle, which I
think might be a Red-Tailed Eagle, likes to perch on a bare limb
and I like to zoom in and try to capture him.
Our resident Blue Heron perching on a limb in the same area as
the Eagle, but this photo was taken last summer. It's hard for
me to keep the camera still with the zoom fully extended.
Those of you who have read my blog for a while now
know that I love birds. So when I saw this Purple Finch
stopping by for a snack, I quickly grabbed the camera
and zoomed in.
Practicing with my camera on my zinnias will be coming to
an end soon. The heat and drought, in spite of my watering,
has taken a toll on them and they aren't looking so good now.
It's time to lay the garden to rest for the season and
try again next year.
Until next time...
