Weathered In, Waiting for change…..


We’re still a little weathered in, drizzly, wet cold.  I don’t mind the cold, but for photography, moisture and cameras are not good bedfellows.  But we got out Friday when the sun broke through for an hour or so and I got these pictures to share.

Golden-fronted Woodpecker - female

Golden-fronted Woodpecker photographed from distance of about 40 feet.  Canon 7D, 500mm lens with 1.4 tele-converter.  1/1250 sec. @ f8, ISO 400.  Hand-held.

Western Meadowlark

Western Meadowlark, was about 65 feet away.  Almost hidden in the brown grass.  Canon 7D, 500mm lens with 1.4 tele-converter.  1/1600 sec. @ f8, ISO 400.  Hand-held.

Neither photo is gallery quality, but at least, I was able to get outside for awhile and enjoy the nature, albeit from my car.
