A splash of colour in a dull background. I love my bird feeders but I’m rubbish at taking photos of the birds at them. I probably need a longer lens than a 90mm (this shot has a huge crop) The trouble is I don’t know what lens to buy – do I go for a big huge beast that I can’t carry around with me, or do I go for one with a mega zoom and lose the qualilty. I need somebody to just tell me – BUY THIS ONE! I do love my Pentax K5 and really wanted to stay away from the Canons and Nikons, but they do have a better selection of lenses, and by better I mean cheaper! In the meanwhile I’ll continue trying to shoot birds and get frustrated they’re not as sharp as I’d like them to be. (That is shoot birds with a camera obviously!)
American Oystercatchers in Florida…. or maybe they’re British Oystercatchers on holiday?!?
Today’s assignment (or should I say last week’s coz I’m way behind) didn’t really take much thought. Well, it did, but I’m too busy to think all that much about it so maybe I was being lazy. Whatever, this is a pair so therefore doubles! Done.
Oh all right then, I’ll also throw in a seagull
