The above on YouTube has links to the gear– sorry, it did not come through on the ’embedded media’
yes, you need a filter so you do not damage your DSLR’s sensor and it has a link for the solar viewing glasses. (so you do not damage your eyes–not many blind photographers to my knowledge– protect your eyes and your sunglasses won’t cut it)
Here it is— July 4th already. Seems like it was just yesterday it was Memorial Day. Summer is about half over and we have a ton of chores to do here at the house.
Zachary was here last week after attending his running camp. It is his senior year and we hope he does well both in running and his studies.
Molly and I were having coffee last Monday morning thinking of where to take a day trip. We were looking at Meramec Springs Park and then we received an email from our good friend Fred Henning. Fred is one of the most dedicated and talented bird photographers. He was talking about not finding any Redheaded Woodpeckers and said he found some at ….yep, Meramec Springs Park. A quick reply and Fred told us where he found the birds and we planned a trip for Tuesday morning.
Tuesday arrived and we were fogged in. When it lifted we decided to take a road to I-44 that we had never been on before. Talk about over the river and through the woods 🙂
Anyway– these are ones that Molly took that I thought were interesting showing feeding behavior between adult and juvenile.
All taken with Canon 40D and the Canon 500mm with a 1.4 extender.
