Right after I took a few pictures of the baby birds, I went ahead and continued taking some shots of random things around the yard. There isn’t anything jumping out at me today that wants its picture taken, but while Laura and I were strolling around earlier, I happened to notice a model frog or two as well as some very early stage pears on our pear tree. Since I like to have things like this catalogued, I went ahead and recorded them with my camera.
Other than those two, I took a nice picture of a butterfly, a late Dandelion, some flowers and the buds of our either raspberry or blackberry bushes. We don’t quite know what they are yet, but I’ll tell you one thing – if the birds don’t get to them, we’re going to have a lot of berries this year. These bushes are everywhere.
One note about my Sigma 70-300mm lens – it needs a tripod when using it. This lens can zoom in to see the nose hair on a mosquito, so any camera shake creates blur. Also, it’s highly recommended that you use a remote clicker. I have both the tripod and the clicker, but didn’t use the clicker today. And even though the lens has a stabilizer, it worked only so well. The pictures could be clearer, but you would notice that only if you really looked closely and enlarged them. That’s what I do, so I noticed it.
Anyway, here are today’s random pictures from around the property. Enjoy.
