Sat. 10.20.18 – Once again the pygmy nuthatches returned to the water faucet today and I was prepared with my Nikon D850 and a 300mm f/4 lens. I was further prepared by optimizing the fn button on the front of the D850 to switch image size between FX and DX crop so that I would get more reach to take a nice photo(s) of any birds at the water faucet.
This photo makes me happy.
03.01.18 – I have a new-old ambition that I am going to do my best to start and continue as of today: daily blogging (regular public writing) – even if it is only a little tidbit or bio bit or photo.
Let’s start from the photos of the Vermilion Flycatcher that I took two days ago at the La Paz County Park, Parker, Arizona – which is in a manicured riparian zone next to the Colorado River. Photos were taken by Ms. Jen with her Nikon D800 and a Nikon 70-200mm f/4 lens.
Sat 11.22.14 – Today I went over to Bolsa Chica Wetlands during low tide and had fun for over 40 minutes watching a Bird Party! at the water outflow pipes between the big wetland sections. Not only were the birds having a grand time of fishing for little fry and sardines, as well as the seagulls attempting to steal said fish from the terns while flying, but there were many photographers of various species and bird watchers. Thus it was not only fun to watch the antics of the birds, but also of the humans.

Mon 08.19.13 – I have been turned around on my days since Saturday’s crazy jaunt from Tiki Oasis in San Diego up to Thomas’ graduation in Pasadena and have thought it was one day later than it was for the last two days. Today I thought it was Tuesday most of the day, even when all my technology was telling me it was Monday the 19th. Thinking it was Tuesday, August 20th the evening of the full moon, I dragged my Mom out for a walk just before sunset to the Bolsa Chica Wetlands, which has a great open view of the east and south for risings of the sun (not that I go see that much), the moon, and any other planet or star on the epliptic.
But the moon rose at least 40 minutes before the sun set, and not even that clued me into the fact that it was the Day Before for Full Moon. Silly me. But here are two of my photos of the nearly full moon taken from the walk around the wetlands, one taken with the Nokia Lumia 1020 and the other with the Nokia 808 PureView.
