One-Year Ago (19-May-2016) — New Jersey

Backyard spring nature in New Jersey. A Chipping Sparrow, a Carpenter Bee in flight, a cluster of Rhododendron flowers, a white wildflower, a Jack in the Pulpit flower, and a ball of Dandelion seeds. I ended the day taking some pictures of the Waxing Gibbous (nearly full) Moon. All but the chipping sparrow image were taken using a Fuji 100-400 mm OIS lens. I am really liking this lens as an alternative for the Fuji X series cameras to the Nikon 80-400 mm VRII lens. The Fuji 100-400 mm lens is about the same size as the Nikon 80-400 mm lens. Also, since the sensor on the Fuji X cameras is 1.5x smaller than a full frame 35 mm sensor — the field of view for the Fuji 100-400 mm lens is equivalent to a 150-600 mm lens.
