Now it really feels like Spring has sprung – the bees are back. I’m improving on capturing them with the larger lens (55-200mm zoom). This morning, I decided one does not need to have everything in sharp focus to capture Nature’s quickening.

I’m itching to photograph more small things.

Thanks for looking.

I spotted this pretty Eastern Rosella on my walk earlier in the week. They never come into my yard but I often see a pair skimming overhead towards the paddocks behind my place.

Sue asked the other day, just how big was that Long-billed Corella I showed you. I couldn’t believe my luck when I saw these two together. (Nikon D3000)

I love how this photo turned out. I didn’t manipulate it in any way, apart from a slight sharpen, a crop, and framing in GIMP.

A Long-billed Corella,  in the lane behind our house. I don’t often see these up close, but do hear small flocks fly overhead. (Nikon D3000)
