This beetle, the size of a penny, was such a good model for me tonight. It sat on my deck and on this flower with the patience only an invertebrate could have.
Did you know that birds are the direct descendants of dinosaurs? Look at this foot? It’s like a velociraptor is about to hunt me down and eat my eyeballs for breakfast. Trying out a rental lens. The Sony FE 4.5-5.6 70-300mm G OSS was really nice for the close-in birding but lacked the zoom range to get those birds that were more than 50 feet away. Far more easy to handle than my Tamron 150-600.
