Gosh, this has been a rather useless day. I haven’t been able to motivate myself into doing anything constructive. Ann and I made our usual trip to the park to feed the birds. While there, we did see a hornets nest being built over the door to the blind, so I dispatched that without sustaining any injury.
We didn’t see anything else exciting so we headed back to the house. I think I forgot to mention on a previous post that we saw a fox a couple of mornings ago. I grabbed the camera as soon as we spotted it, fired off a couple of shots, only to discover that in my haste that I had accidently moved my exposure dial way off kilter. So consequently the photos were drastically over exposed. That’s just like me. When my ship came in, I was at the airport. Always missing great opportunities.
But there have been times that I have been prepared. For example the shot of the Red-tailed Hawk I have posted here. We spotted him high overhead. I had my Canon 100-400mm zoom lens and I stopped the van. I locked him on my auto-focus and tracked him until I was able to get this photo. Nothing to this job. 🙂
Enjoy the photo. Click on the image to see enlargement. Happy Birding!!
