Reach For the Sky and Do it NOW

Why You Have Come Here

If you have arrived here seeking sanctity or blessing, then you will have to provide your own cloak and dagger. I only confess to the daily struggle to treat the world with the respect it has earned in my estimation. We all look to the sky and wonder. I feel the whisper of the ages calling and know not what flutter or ripple calls true. My approach is to touch your life in only the manner in which you prefer. As we all must suffer at some time, then I feel we all deserve, also, the right to laugh. My smile is my weapon, and at times my words also I use to defend.

Super Telephoto-420-800mm lens

I am just now getting the hang of the telephoto lens. Even on the tripod, everything wobbles and weaves. By the time that I get it focused, the slightest breath and I have a blurred photo. I dreamed of shots that looked like National Geographic. I still have more to learn. It is impressive that this bird is so far away that I could just tell that it was on the wire by the naked eye. I think that I need to still work on the internal setting too for the camera because the sky is an unforgiving background. Also, it was 99 degrees so my patience level was a little off. I have ordered some more bird identification books as I gave Dad mine last summer.

Hummingbirds are the hardest little devils to catch on film. Just finding him or her has been a major achievement as it is feeding naturally in my garden. I don't have hummingbird feeders.
