My new Lumix FZ300 arrived yesterday and I took it paddling today. I really need to spend some time with the directions, because I had not a clue what I was doing. I was frustrated with how long it took to be ready for subsequent photos, even though I have a fast memory card for it. All that said, so far I’m thrilled. I had a beautiful day on the water today, and stalked a lot of wildlife (I also chewed out a guy on his houseboat for throwing cigarette butts in the water. WTH?). I’ll just share two photos for now, because I am still a terrible photographer.
The hornet nest I almost ate recently. They were very active but the photos I caught of the residents were all blurry. I have much to learn - especially to not get so engrossed in shooting that I don’t notice I’m drifting too close to a nest!
I watched this guy fish for a while, and he was wary at first but then forgot I was there. I have loads of blurry photos of him, too.
There were not a lot of herons out there today. I think they have started moving on from the area.
