Puffins!

We went with Patsy’s parents on a puffin watch today near Pemaquid Maine. It was pretty great, and we saw a bunch of puffins (though not as close-up as we would’ve most liked.) It is NOT easy using a long tele lens on a boat with moving birds as subjects, let me tell you!

Still going through the photos, but here’s a couple that turned out ok.

Toad!

This toad was sitting outside the house and he didn’t seem to mind at all that I was shoving a macro lens in his face. I didn’t have enough light to get intense detail, but I am pretty happy with how the detail melts in from the defocused areas. Nice, creamy bokeh from my lens too, always nice to see :)
