Backyard Springtime Dawn.

I am getting to like this Leica CL camera. I think it will become a great travel camera. It is light-weight, has a 24 MP sensor, and accepts the Leica T series lenses. This panorama is a composite of 18 images, and really needs to be viewed on a large screen or as a large print.

Early Springtime Backyard Nature and A Geology Walk at Rock Mill Preserve.

Several small birds working the bird feeder greeted me in the morning. I switched to a Nikon D4 camera and 600 mm f/4 lens on a Wembly tripod just inside the patio door. The camera is just past the minimum focus distance for this camera/lens combination. Birds captured include: Tufted Titmouse, Black Eyed Junco, Chipping Sparrow, House Finch, American Robin, and Black Crow. Later, in the afternoon I attended a monthly “Sunday Walk in the Park” events. This month the subject was the geology in central New Jersey and took place at Rock Mill Preserve, located within walking distance from my house.
