Default ...familiarizing with the E-3 again

Gosh, it has been a long year with little time for triggering the E-3 and in some ways it seems like starting over.

So I went for another walk in the park close by to find what I could, too bad the rains last week took out all the late blooming wild flowers. The last time in the nature preserve I was too early for the flowers then the rains came and pushed me back to a week late. But it was great fun walking the 60-acres by myself (not many go in there).

These are some with the 70-300 & 50-200 on a really cloudy day.

E-3 70-300ZD 300mm f/7.1 @ 1/200 ISO 100



E-3 70-300ZD 300mm f/6.3 @ 1/160 ISO 100



E-3 70-300ZD 141mm f/6.3 @ 1/100 ISO 100



E-3 50-200 v-I 76mm f/13 @ 1/15 ISO 100


E-3 50-200 v-I 123mm f/3 @ 1/1000 ISO 400


E-3 50-200 v-I 76mm f/2.8 @ 1/2000 ISO 400


E-3 50-200 v-I 137mm f/3.1 @ 1/100 ISO 100


E-3 50-200 v-I 50mm f/11 @ 1/100 ISO 640





....for Steven, we don't have any gators in the neighborhood but this twig the beaver was working on got his teeth sharpened pretty well. This tree is about 6-inches. I've never seen evidence of beavers at any of the three small lakes and this was at a place way far from any of them, interesting to find it.

E-3 50-200 v-I 104mm f/18 @ 1/125 ISO 1600

Nice shots Bob. If there are trees and a little creek nearby the beavers will put a lake in before you know it. I've seen a lot of them in NY. When I was young my friends and I tried to dam up a creek so we could swim in it. It kept breaking but the beavers noticed and immediately moved in and built it the proper way. And the DEC said do not touch it.

Good job BoBB, great job of capturing some spring time scenes, especially the Dragonfly.

What sharp teeth the beaver has.

I couldn't help a chuckle or two, because I remember the hilarious Jeff Foxworthy routine about a beaver.

Hi Bob,

It's great seeing you getting out and about. It's really been too long a time.

Now that you've got your feet wet (so to speak), I'm looking forward to some baseball pics.

Zig

Good stuff Bob, glad you're out and about again. Is that Dragonfly bronze or just anodized aluminum?

Good to see you're back in the saddle, Bob. Looks like you haven't forgotten anything.

....thanks for looking guys

just a couple comments:

Zig, amateur baseball summers seem to be finished, Jacob is not playing this summer and likely won't play college next year. He is now all about school (law) and that ain't bad.

Steven, Foxworthy is a favorite of mine but I don't remember the beaver, I'll look for it.

Ken, the Dragonfly does look a bit like a 'brooch' but it flew off on it's own, I didn't plant it for the photo..... hihi

.....and the oak burl, I swear it was looking at me then turned away when I brought the camera to eye level.

Having been suffering from cabin fever for a few months (i.e. constant rain), I second what everyone said - good on 'ya for getting out and shooting!
