Watching Nature

October 23, 2014

A couple of days ago I discovered little birds alighting on the sunflowers to feast on the seeds. Since it was such a beautiful day, I lay on the grass with my camera trying to catch one in the act. Couldn’t stay there long ’cause the grass was itchy but got one in flight.

Then I discovered a very large mushroom. It’s about the size of a softball. Plan to watch it to see how it develops.

Recently, I purchased a new camera; a Nikon D300. I hope I can rise to it’s potential. I’m reading David Busch’s Nikon D300 Guide to Digital SLR Photography. Literally started on page one and am pushing myself through it. Trouble is, I get out in the field photographing and remember that I’ve read what I’m supposed to do to change a setting, but can’t remember how! It will come.

So while out in the woods, yesterday, photographing wild flowers,I stumbled upon a morel mushroom. Fair size. Photographed it, picked it, soaked it over night in salt water (to get rid of all the little bitty bugs), and ate it for breakfast this morning. YUM!
