Today we got a visit from a pair of Northern Cardinals. We’ve seen them a few times before, but they are always nice to see. I particularly like the coloring of the female, because it’s so subtle as compared to the bright red coloring of the male. I’ve been using some bird seed that I bought from the supermarket, but I am going to give some black oil sunflower seeds next and see what birds the feed attracts. Fun stuff!
Also, I have been looking at buying a new Fujifilm 50-230 mm lens for birding, but cannot quite justify the cost, even though it is relatively inexpensive. For now, I am using the manual-focus Minolta 135 mm lens and adapter with Mariko’s Fujifilm X-T10. Wasn’t able to nail the focus on the first photo, but the others came out okay.
I hope you had a great day, considering the turmoil that COVID-19 is causing.
