Posted on February 28, 2016 by Jennifer Sawicky Photography2016-02-28: What I’ve seen this week This week has flown by, as most of them seem to do lately. Rather than ramble on and on, I’ll get straight to the pictures. I hope you enjoy, and wishing everyone a wonderful week 🙂 A pileated woodpecker that I spotted at the top of my road Tuesday morning. 1/640sec, f4.0, ISO125(Taken with my new Panasonic camera. I’m pretty impressed with it, and it certainly is nice and light to take on walks) I glanced out the window while in my office, and noticed the pileated woodpecker in the forest behind my house. This one was shot through the window with my Nikon / Tamron combo.1/500sec, f6.3, ISO640 @ 600mm I ventured outside to get a few shots, keeping a safe distance so I wouldn’t startle the woodpecker.1/640sec, f6.3, ISO 2200 Not a classic bird photo, but I love the contrast of the blurry branches and the nicely lit eye.1/640sec, f6.3, ISO 2500 @600mm I ventured out to West Lake yesterday, because as you can see, it was just too nice to be indoors. There was quite a brisk breeze, and the place was deserted save for one other car. Spencer had a great time sniffing along the edge of the frozen lake.1/640sec, f8, ISO 125 An eagle’s nest high in the treetops. I imagine once the tree is in full leaf, many people sitting at the benches below wouldn’t even realize that it is there. I noticed movement in the nest, but was having a hard time seeing what it was. On full zoom, I finally caught sight of an eagle 🙂 1/640sec, f4.0, ISO 160 An explosion of movement that I wasn’t prepared for at all. I had no idea there were two eagles in the nest until they decided quite suddenly to vacate it and head for another nearby tree. Given the proximity to my house, I wonder if this is the pair I saw a few weeks ago at the deer kill site? Eagles always look quite fierce to me, so it’s hard to tell if this is a dirty look, or just a normal one.1/1250sec, f4.0, ISO200 A bit of preening in the sun.1/1250sec, f4.0, ISO 160 One final shot before it was time to head home.1/1250sec, f3.8, ISO 125 Related
