Photos from Upper Newport Bay Nature Preserve
« on: Today at 10:02:09 AM »
Yes, I have not been posting pictures for a while. Well, I was is Costa Mesa, California for 4 weeks and discovered in the third week that the Upper Newport Bay Nature Preserve was just 15 minutes walking distance from my hotel. Luckily, I had taken my 5D3 with the kit lens, my 100-400 and the 1.4x. So I went over to the preserve a few times - four or five I think. There is a good amount of wildlife there. This is the first tranche of pictures. The important thing I want to share with you is that I have been using MagicLantern for several months now - only for Dual ISO. I find it is great! You guys should try it. There is a request. I am lousy at identifying birds let alone birds from another continent. I would appreciate if you guys would educate me :)

So here goes:

You're welcome Sir. I'm sorry, I cannot do any better, I do not have the Bird Identification Guide for the West Coast.
