Maureen, loved the Puffins!!

Well Poof has had me in an era of the least amount of shooting I've done in years working on a campervan conversion. My hat is off
to any electrician or mechanic. I've been doing the Cliff Notes of Youtube trying to get up to speed on wiring and electrical but I'm like
a fish out of water.

Anyway a shot from last week sometime. I'd played with the digiscope on this hawk on his favorite perch 140 feet up a gigantic oak tree. It's
the tallest of a grove of giant oaks in the neighborhood that gives him the whole view. Digiscope did ok at 3300mm but this time I tried with
the new Sony in crop mode with the 1st Gen Tam 150-600 for an effective 900mm. Hard to believe frail old me can handhold 900mm(ish)-

Pagman that is the male of two Red-tails that live in my neighborhood, you've probably seen many pics of him I've taken in the past. I'd be 90% of his life awake is sitting and watching for something to nab. I did see him fly back to his nest the other day with a stick in his mouth so you know what that means.

This is such a great thread with so much talent. I wish I had more time & a longer lens every time I come in here. :-D


Life is hard...but I just take it one photograph at a time.

It's been a real pleasure getting to learn about these songbirds the last 4 years since they "found" my yard....mealworms has a lot to do with it plus I have 3 nest boxes up so they can move to a new one once the latest brood has fledged or is close to fledging. The female usually has the next nest built and ready to go before the other fledge. They are very productive during the short breeding season in VA.

Can't leave out the Tufted Puffin (sorry for the narrow DOF... he was so close to me and I didn't have time to make any changes as I was afraid he would scoot away).
