Spiny Softshell Turtle

I see this big 'ole fellow sunning at OLD Reid Park occasionally, but have never seen his neck extended so much.

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.
