Yesterday my inexperience with the fine Nikon 800 which has been lent to me (in my time of camera need) resulted in super-over-exposed photos. After much You Tube video study and some practice, I had a little more success today.The 562 page manual is a touch overwhelming at the moment.
Here are some park scenes from this 4 degree morning which eventually featured quite a lot of sunshine:
Species list: mallard, wood duck, red-tailed hawk, ring-billed gull, hairy woodpecker, downy woodpecker, eastern phoebe, black-capped chickadee, white-breasted nuthatch, blue jay, American crow, golden-crowned kinglet, house sparrow, northern cardinal, American goldfinch, white-throated sparrow, song sparrow. (17 species)
This camera does not have a large zoom range. See if you can spot the Red-tailed Hawk in this photo:
Some of today’s birds from photos taken during other walks:
This morning’s group:
Fresh October brings the pheasant;
Then to gather nuts is pleasant. – Sara Coleridge (1802–52)
