One Never Knows ….

Each morning, early, my boys and I leave for our walk.  Each walk is an adventure and we never know what we will see.  A portion of the Red Fox Valley is our play ground.  One morning the boys met a skunk.  It was a smelly walk home.  This morning we saw these wonderful Cedar Waxwings.  I am getting a lot of use out of my bird books!  And my new lens!

Mirror Lens

I have recently acquired a new lens for my DSLR camera.  It is a 500mm f/6.3 mirror lens.  I am having great fun with it.  I love what it does to the background due to the narrow depth of field.  The manual focus is very touchy but I’m getting better at using it.  I’ve added some of the photos I’ve taken with it in Mirror Lens in the Gallery.
