It was a cool but dry fall day, around 55-60 degrees and partly cloudy. It was the first time we went out on a photo safari together. Sandy has been into photography since high school, and I'm just in the last year finally discovering the joy of digital photography. I had the idea that it'd be fun to try to catch some birds at the lake, I could get some practice as I learn what my Nikon D3200 does and she, well, she can take all the good pics. I soon found my zoom was completely inadequate. The stock lens goes to 55mm and just can't sneak up on wildlife as well as the Canon. Sandy just missed a few great snaps of the heron scoring a fishy snack. Guess we have a reason to take another safari in the future.
Carl used a Nikon D3200 with the stock 18-55mm lens
Sandy used a Canon PowerShot SX530 (which boasts 24-1200mm)
Note about picture clarity: I wasn't planning on starting an online diary until late in the day, so the pictures are not direct transfers from memory to PC. Some of the Canon/Sandy shots are a little more blurry than actual. Don't hold that against Canon nor Sandy.
