Super Moon

Who could resist a photo of the moon when it looked so big in the sky.

Taken with Nikon D70 at 500mm + cropped.

Short but sweet.

Waxwings

Well I know I have said this in previous posts, but this really was a surprise.

I got a text message on Wednesday from a friend saying he had Waxwings in a tree behind his house, luckily I had the day off work so you can imagine I was straight there.

The last time I saw Waxwings was back in January 2009 and was miles away and took hours to find them, I have never seen Waxwings near where I live and haven't heard reports of sightings of them in years.

The only downer on this amazing opportunity was the only tree with a few berries left was in a shaded corner, but you can't have everything.

Here are the shots I got.



And finally a close up portrait.


All photos taken with Nikon D70 + Sigma 170-500mm

Hope you liked the shots.

Going good so far, hope I can keep this up.

Mike.
