Egret Sighting

IMG_3919copy

First egret sighting at the pond. I decided to try using my Mirror (or Cat lens). It's a manual focus beast that has fixed aperture of f8. My eyes aren't what they used to be and manually focusing anything is a shot in the dark. He stayed close enough that I could have just used my 75-300mm. Who would have thought there were fish that big in that little pond. Not me, that's for sure!!

It's been a beautiful day. A bonus at that as all week they were predicting rain and storms, not the sunshine we have today. Think I'll head out somewhere more scenic and wet.
