Oh, By The Way…In Case I Didn’t Tell You…

my blog postings will likely be quite sporadic throughout the summer months.   Not that I’ve been super diligent about writing prior to my last few posts.   So what have I been up to?   Photography.   Most of my spare time these days has evolved around taking pictures with my Canon DSLR and playing with the ever-growing arsenal of lenses I’m accumulating (much to the chagrin of my wife).

Here’s a recent pic I took just last week with my new 400mm lens (click on the picture to expand the view).   I know it’s not exactly wild game, but do you know how challenging it is to capture detail on a hummingbird while almost stopping the motion of the wings?   Yea, it’s not easy, but it sure is fun trying.

Have a great summer…until next time.
