All but one or two pictures you see on this blog have been taken with the Nikon Coolpix L110. I’ve been using it for a couple years now and it has served me well, but I felt it was time for me to upgrade – and upgrade I did! I’ll now be shooting with the Nikon Coolpix P510 which, although still not a DSLR, has an amazing 42X optical zoom and a total of 16.1 MegaPixels! Unlike the L110, manual focus and custom exposure time is now at my fingertips. It is actually designed for nature photographers, and will greatly improve my ability to photograph wild animals and insects. I’ll be taking it out for a test run tomorrow and hope to share some fresh shots with you soon!
For the last four weeks I’ve been privileged with a front row seat to the miracle of life. One of my ducks, Dorothy, spent the hottest part of this year so far tending to a nest of eggs laid in late June and she now has three newly-hatched ducklings to show for her patience.
