  8. Now that's a different kind of reflection!

    Thanks for visiting my blog. That shot was with a 50mm on a crop sensor, so it's actually 80mm. If you hover your mouse over any photo on my blog, it gives you EXIF data.

  15. In reply to your comment on my birds blog...

    I was just going through 163 photos I took the other day of a male Sharp-shinned hawk. Out here in the wind with his feathers looking like a tango dancer. It is a beautiful bird. I would be willing to work one of those up for you if you are interested.

  21. Thank you so much everyone for your kind comments! I was so freezing cold when I took this shot with the sun was just trying to come out. The buoy was way out off the end of the island. I laid the camera on a rock after I focused on the bird. Click. I had no idea the image would look like this. When I cropped it for the blog page I found this composition. There were lots of happy accidents!
