Sitting and Waiting
This Canada Goose is sitting on a nest built on the top of an active beaver lodge. I wonder how the beavers will react when the goslings hatch and the noise on the floor above increases. Will the beavers start banging on their ceiling? This scene was imaged on the grounds of the Mud Creek Environmental Learning Center in Ghent, New York, USA. For this image, I used my manual focus Tamron Adaptall-2 Model 55BB SP 500mm f8 Mirror Lens and Tamron Adaptall-2 140f 1.4X Flat Field Teleconverter with attached Tamron Adaptall-2 Pentax K M Mount on Pentax K20D Camera, hand held, manually focused, Shake Reduction set to 700mm, ISO 400, f8 on lens, 1/500 sec, with available ambient sunlight. This is a full resolution Large JPEG and is Straight Out Of Camera (SOOC) without any post-processing, editing, adjustment, cropping, or re-sizing. My lens was functioning as a 700mm f11 Mirror Lens.
