I went out with my 400mm lens today. Truly, truly I did. Truly, truly I meant to photograph a bird, and break free of my recent macro obsession.
In fact, I DID take a photo of a bird. A small Empidonax flycatcher of undetermined species. There aren’t many bird species I can’t immediately ID by sight, but these guys are. I thought it was kind of fitting that while I’m in my bird photo rut, the one nice bird photo I got today was of the one group of birds I have a hard time ID’ing.
I did get a lot more macro photos though! I’m rapidly filling up my hard drive with unprocessed macro photos. They now sit there alongside all my bezillion bird photos that sit on my hard drive, longing for the day when they’ll see the light of day. To facilitate the processing of the macro photos though, I did finally set up an official macro photo page on my main website. You can access it here:
