Sat out this morning coffee in one hand 7D2 in the other. Not a big fan of coots but they were very active. It must be mating season. So do they fly or walk on water? Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite

Its so easy to shoot burds in our backyard. Cormorants are playful and very active. They are either diving for fish or spreading the wings in the sun.   My Sony A6000 can capture 10fps (frames per second) I’ll spare you all the poop shots but I knew he would do this, the bastard. Start […]

I get most all my lenses used via Ebay and this Tamron 150-600mm is no exception. I’ve only had one opportunity to use it but shows promise. Of course when I use this on my 7D2 it has a 240-960mm equivalent. Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite
