Now quite some time after that first post, I’m finally getting to the second part (and who knows how long it will take to get to subsequent installments…).
My lack of timeliness notwithstanding, however, I hope you enjoy seeing the fruit of my initial experience memorializing moments of time with this great piece of photographic equipment. The more I use it, the better the results, yet I couldn’t have been happier with what it accomplished on our first walk together.
A simple view of the lake with the sun rising behind me.
A small covert of American coots (Fulica americana) foraging on shore.
A beautiful, large male muscovy duck (Cairina moschata) keeping himself
between me and his lady friend standing just behind and to the left of him.
Four American white pelicans (Pelecanus erythrorhynchos), two
preening and two beaking (which is how these large birds establish
and maintain their pecking order).
Two ring-billed gulls (Larus delawarensis) in flight.
An American crow (Corvus brachyrhynchos) hunting for breakfast on
the wet floodplain.
I promise to get back to this set of photos soon so I can complete this series before 2015…
