    CWGRIZZ Playing Around--Trying to learn

    CWGRIZZ Playing Around--Trying to learn
    Today I played around with my 70-300mm lens. These two pictures were probably the best of the bunch. Too bad I didn't get them for the "Birds, Birds, Birds" challenge. Ha! All comments and constructive criticisms are welcome. As the thread title says, "Trying to learn."

    The first is a Shovhoe Crane. It is all but extinct. I think this is the only one existence.



    This is a Mearns Quail scouting for the covey.

    I don't know. The first looks a bit "posed" and stiff for that species.

    Good shots.

    Today, tried for some close ground work. Still playing with the Nifty-Fifty(ish) game.

    I had always heard this called another name. but wasn't sure how to spell it. Upon doing a little research I discovered that it is called Waxy-Rushpea in this part of the country, however it has other names in other locals. None of which are the name I was looking for. Ha! The plant only gets about 10" tall max. The flowers are very small.
