I’ve been spending time in this preserve, experimenting with different lenses and camera settings. It’s all about the practice. And the timing. And patience. A lot of patience! And bug spray, as it is buggy.
I took photos of this teeny hummingbird at a Rutger’s University extension garden located in central, New Jersey.
These were primarily taken at the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge in NJ, except for two taken near my home bird feeder.
This winter I have shot hundreds upon hundreds (okay, into the thousands) of birds and outdoor nature images. Some of my images I used as references for paintings and drawings, which I am truly enjoying. While my goal today was to finish weeding my winter photos before starting a new season, that didn’t happen. Instead, with yesterday’s snowstorm and this morning’s beautiful lighting, I was outside shooting more. Here’s a favorite of the day.
