Nov. 29, 2013 – Ridgefield NWR – 5 Images

Posted in

Nov. 29, 2013, was one of those cool, cloudy, and dark days that made shooting difficult.  Wildlife activity, for photography purposes anyway, was also ‘slow.’  I think I broke my record for the least number of frames taken in a shooting day–49.   All shots were taken with the Canon 5D Mark III, 1/1000, f4, ISO 1250, 500mm.

A Double-crested Cormorant pair seems to have made Ridgefield their temporary home lately.  I’ve spotted them many times over recent weeks.  [Click on the thumbnail for a larger view.]

And a Song Sparrow.

A very pretty duck, the Northern Pintail.

For those of you who use Photoshop and Lightroom and who own a commercial version of Photoshop CS3 or later, you can still get in on the $9.99/mo. deal with Adobe Creative Cloud’s Photography Program through February 28, 2014.  As much as I use these two programs, this was a great deal for me.  I just wanted to let you know that Adobe had extended the offer.

Thanks for stopping by!  See you next time.
