Spotted with my scope… (1)

  

We bought a scope (Kowa TSN-884) to take photos of our Vacation Rental Properties… getting upclose & personal with the monkey’s in Costa Rica AND to view fields full of magestic Sandhill cranes on Manitoulin Island without disrupting nature!  Here are a few photos we took around our home…  Stayed tuned for more photos from all our properties!    

These two photos are kind of a cheat… we didn’t actually take the photos of the Little Blue Heron & the Anhinga drying it’s wings, BUT it was the reason we now own a scope!  our tour guide in Carara Park in Costa Rica took them with his scope by holding up my pentax point and shoot camera – YUP, that’s right a 4.0 megapixel point and shoot camera took these photos!

The remainder of the photos are taken by us and you can tell we are still learning.  At first we tried holding up the camera to the lense of the scope – freehand but eventually we broke down and purchased the camera attachment.

This Heron photo was taken in our yard in Cambridge Ontario, Canada… I know it shouldn’t surprise me  – they CAN fly!!!  So I don’t know why it impresses me that the same type of bird that is found in Costa Rica in the winter is found in our back yard in the spring.
