October 5th, 2019 I sent out looking for some wildlife to photograph. I was hoping to use my newly acquired Nikon 500mm f/4 D lens. Unfortunately the wildlife I found were some ducks and a couple of Trumpeter Swans in a pond at the Memorial Park. They were close enough that I was able to use my Nikon 70-200mm f2.8 E lens.
Not that using this awesome lens is a bad thing. It takes amazing photographs with lots of resolution and clarity. I was just hoping to use my longer telephoto lens.
This is the first time I’ve seen a banded Canada Goose. I wonder who it is that is tracking them?
Trumpeter Swans trumpeting in response to Canada geese flying over head and calling.
Most of the geese that were flying over i was either too late to try and take a picture of them, or the sun was in an awful position to capture a good image due to a back lighting situation.
Here is the full gallery of photos from the shoot.
