American Goldfinch on a Thistle. Sourland Mountain Preserve. Image taken with a Nikon D3s and 300 mm f/2.8 VR lens + TC-E III 20 teleconverter (ISO 250, 600 mm, f/5.6, 1/500 sec). Raw image processed with Capture One Pro 6, Nik Define, and Photoshop CS5.
Running Fawn. Images taken with a Nikon D700 camera and 28-300 mm lens. For the first image, the camera wasn’t fast enough to capture focus. Second image, the rear part of the deer was closer in focus, but I no longer had the full animal in view.
Paper wasps working at the nest. Eggs and larvae at various stages of development. Image taken with a Nikon D3x camera and 105 mm VR macro (+ TC-E 20 III) [ISO 100, 210 mm, f/40, 1/60 sec] plus SB-910 flash.
Grey Catbird singing to me on the deck. Backyard Summer Nature in New Jersey. Image taken with a Nikon D4 camera and 80-400 mm VRII lens (ISO 1600, 400 mm, f/5.6, 1/40 sec). Hand-held, the vibration reduction on this new lens is good for an exposure this long.
