A Black Phoebe Looking at Me and My Camera

Black Phoebe looking at me and my camera

Thurs. 02.09.17 – I am absolutely delighted with the Nikon AF-S 70-200mm f/4 VR ED lens that I am testing, as the photos are sharp all the way through the zoom range and the color is fantastic. I put the lens on my Nikon D800 this afternoon at The Huntington Library and Gardens and mostly had a small career as a bee paparazzi. When I was walking out, I saw a beautiful, young black phoebe perched on a young magnolia tree less than 10 feet from me.

I stopped. I moved slowly. The black phoebe was wary. I waited. It stayed. I shot about seven photos of it watching me. I love this one, as its eye is in full view.

Thurs 11.03.16 – After dropping my dad off at the hospital for a bit of preventative cardiology, I went for a small photo walk before going back to the hospital. Here are a few of the photos taken by me with my Nikon D800 and a Nikon 50mm f/1.4G lens.
