    I shot at f/22 to capture detail in the sun's rays as well as depth of field. Little did I know my sensor was dirty - actually that's an understatement! The right side of the image had more spots than I've ever seen on a sensor.

    In spite of the dust, it's still an interesting photo.

    Thanks, PLM. It took me a while to clean up the sensor spots. I really enjoy seeing these types of cloud formations. They can be very ominous.

    I haven't seen nearly as much wildlife this winter as I have during the past couple of winters. Fortunately today I saw this Red-Tailed Hawk. Both images are cropped quite a bit since this is the longest reach I've got right now.

    Other people around here have photographed eagles and hawks, but sometimes they are going on private property to do so. I don't do that myself though. Last year there was a hawk perched in this same area many days during January and February but not this year. With the AF problem of my 300mm lens and not being able to take in-focus photos with it, what raptors I do see tend to be too far away with other lenses. At least the lens is getting serviced now so hopefully I will be able to capture a few more raptors before summer when they move further away from populated areas.

    I hope you find some to photograph yourself, Walt!

    I took this first photo the other day while testing out my 300mm lens that was repaired. Every photo had this one eye appear as though the Great Blue Heron was blind in it.

    Today I saw a Great Blue Heron in the same pond of water - if it is the same one, at least it can see out of this other eye.

    hark 2021-_5dx4064-low-res.jpg

    No clue what's below. It was in the same pond as the heron today.

    hark 2021-_5dx4083-low-res.jpg

    Then I headed over to the park when this moth landed on these blossoms. Although the image appears as though it would look good if rotated to the right 90 degrees, it really doesn't. The branch on the left edge of the image looks strange when the image it rotated. Yes, I know I can use content aware to fill it in, but I'm just going to leave it as it was originally.

    While I was at the park today, I took a few memorial bench photos. These images are for the families who have lost loved ones. I share them in a Facebook group dedicated to memorial benches.

    Originally I was headed to the 2nd bench pictured below, but a couple of high school girls got there just before me. One of them set up a tripod to photograph the other girl so I just kept walking until I arrived at this bench below.

    When I was done photographing this red bench, I looked up and saw an elderly man standing in the grass out of the way. I motioned for him to go and said I was finished, but he didn't move. First he started asking me a couple of questions before we became immersed in conversation. He used to be an avid photographer who loved flying over NYC to shoot slide film. When we finished talking, he mentioned how nice it was to speak with someone who truly understood photography and who appreciated the work involved. He said when he used to show photos to his family, they'd simply say the pictures were nice. And actually it was nice to talk with him seeing as he knows how to use a camera. It was a more involved conversation than I normally have with my own friends.

    By the time I headed back to the bench below, the two high school girls were gone. I really wanted to capture the bench with the blossoms in the background.

    hark 2021-_10k3496-low-res.jpg

    And this was the last bench I photographed to also capture some of the blossoms in the background. I know the flowers won't last once we get a wind storm.

    I found out this is a turtle platform.
