Strawberry Moon

I have so much fun shooting moon pics with the Fuji XT-20!
One of the functions is a double exposure, and I've spent a lot of time refining the use of it for moon and cloud images.
When you use he double exposure feature, you can select different settings for the two images. In the image below, I set my first exposure for Multi exposure to capture the pine boughs. This overexposed the moon. For the second image, I changed to spot metering and metered on the moon. 

I used a similar technique for this image.

Magee 2018

Whew! What a week!
We spent the last week at Magee Marsh, on Lake Erie. This was our 15th year of migrating to the lake's edge to partake in the spring migration hoopla. 
While we missed some amazing birds by a couple of days, there were still plenty to view and photograph. Every day brought opportunities to visit with friends while watching these amazing birds. Here's a few of our favorites.

Cold Day Drive...Bucks, Eagle, Owl, & Larks...

After dropping off the grandson, we made our usual pass through Buck Creek State Park. There, we saw several bucks our early (around 1pm) leading David to believe that a second rut may be occurring.  This lady has a couple of suitors....

A closer look at the alert buck on the right....

And another fellow who stayed back in the brush....

We also saw an Eastern Screech Owl....

An adult Bald Eagle (on Hodge Rd).

And lots of Horned Larks....

Not a bad day!
