Had a work trip to Monterey last week and decided to head up early for a little photocation.  It rained four out of the six days but I finally got some closeups of the Black Oystercatchers at Point Lobos.  Rained on me for the first hour or so but then the sun broke through for the last forty five minutes.

EXIF is on the site.

Really nice portrait. Congratulations!

I know they have a less than positive reputation but I rather like them.

Was out trying out my new Tamron 150-600 and while waiting for something more interesting to show up, shot this photo of a lowly starling.

Went to the local park to feed the mallards. Caught one watergliding for a reward!

These shots were taken with an SX-50 in "green box" mode, full zoom plus digital zoom (4800mm equivalent) handheld. To the naked eye the ducks were just dots and you could not tell what kind of bird they were.

I realize these shots are not National Geographic quality, but for a cheap P/S zoomed out like that, it is amazing that you can get this much detail and that the IS actually worked!

Is a remarkable camera, alright.  Well done Don.
