Default Weekend shots

Two images from the past weekend - The Black Wildebeest panned shot is perhaps not everyone's "cuppa tea", but it's good to try something different. The light was very low, so ideal for this type of shot.

This is a Longtailed Widow-bird in his summer garb
Below is the Black Wildebeest

Great clarity in the Widow-Bird - wonderful use of DOF as well.

And I do like the Wildebeest action photo too - not a sharp illustration, but fine artistic expression...

Thanks for posting these!

Jake you continue to amaze me. I am sooooooo jealous. The Big mammals I shoot in Brooklyn are the famed Bunnies - Twice as large as normal Bunnies (which brings them to a whopping five pounds)

Hey Dave, Thanks for looking in. Yes, we are blessed to have these critters around (they're probably not as prolific as is made out in media), but they can be found.
You can always shoot (with a camera) your WB animal that accompanies you
