    Haven't had much time to log in and do much in terms of talking about baroque music, but been busy with wildlife photography.





    Finally got my dream lens; purchasing this for $6500.00. The Nikon AF-S II 600mm f/4 D IF-ED. No tripod/gimbal setup yet. Still utilizing this beast hand-held.

    Some kind of kestrel or harrier. It can be tricky to identify bird from photos.


    If you took this photo in the Western Cape Province, it's a Southern Black Korhaan. Otherwise a Northern Black Korhaan. The two species are very similar and I can't quite see which it is on the photo.

    Mt. Ranier on a particularly spectacular day. Not a bad picture considering I took it with my Blackberry.

    A flock of pelicans that drifted over our car while driving on highway 1 about 30 minutes north of San Simeon in California. They came upon us so fast my wife barely had time to get the camera out and shoot this picture from the passenger window.

    Sorry - just kidding! He's at the Nashville Zoo. I must have been remembering browsing Amazon Books once. Someday I'd like to paint him. I mean a picture of him. He's an adolescent they say, and will get a little bigger.
    Well, you wouldn't have seen one of them in the Amazon because they live in tropical Aisia.

    NOBODY uses a lens like that hand-held. You can get a perfectly serviceable tripod for not much more than a thousand bucks. Sheesh! Meanwhile, I admire your musculature.

    Thanks to Brian for identifying the birds in my photos (though I must confess to having found them out in the years since posting).

    Here's a curious Southern White-faced Scops Owl chick...
