Macro or the Gray Fox Won
This morning I got outfoxed by the Gray Fox. I went out to the ranch and sat in the new blind I put up to photograph it. Twice it came less than twenty feet from the photoblind. The first time I was totally unprepared and my movements in the blind startled it. The fox ran off up the hill. Wow, does that sound familiar? The second time it came from the side of the photoblind. All I could do was watch it as any attempt to move the camera over to the side viewing port would have scared it off. I had to be content to photograph it from a distance. Still it was really cool to watch.I'm determined to get a nice close up of it.
When I got home today there was a package waiting for me. I was like a little kid at Christmas as I tore the package open and went into the back yard to try out my new 100 mm macro lens to replace the one that took a tumble off of my tripod last week.
I really liked how well it works.My favorite image was the one of the honeybee.
God's precious love and blessings to all,
