Before I got to Finn Slough, I spotted this Red-tailed Hawk on top of the telephone pole just above me. From experience, I know they tend to be very shy and almost always fly away before I can take out my camera. So I biked past it and took photos from about 100-m away. Not the best photo but good enough to finally show that there are Red-tailed Hawks around in the area.
This tiny beetle (about 5-mm long) landed on my shirt while biking. I took if off and snapped a few pictures.
The next four photos are my first tries using an OM lens, which feels strange to use. Plus, the metering and white balance seem off, and I will need a lot of practice to get use to it.
Another sky photo.
Took my birding lens out to photograph this Bald Eagle not doing much of anything.
House Sparrow near the feeders
Two Black-capped Chickadees were hanging out near this small nest box at knee height. I didn't get too close just in case they were thinking of nest building there.
Red-winged Blackbird - super difficult to achieve correct exposure of the entire image.
Then I switched back to the OM lens and took the rest of the following photos.
Unknown Purple Flowers
Dog and Owner
Shiny River Bank
Dead Nettles. It was from here to the location of the next photo that I lost the lens cap (Already!?).
Orange wheel and yellow flowers
Happy Easter, everyone!
