Always keep this in mind when photographing nature. April isn't the cruelest month...March is. Cold, but sometimes warm. Windy, or maybe not. Foggy, or clear. Very unpredictable. I went out multiple times to get photos of ducks, and got fogged out every time. Ugh. Came home after many a hike with nothing on the SD card. March sucks the wind out of you.
But, April finally arrived! With a new sense of bright liveliness and color. My heart welcomed the month and the migrating birds. Finally. This winter seemed loooong.
Also picked up a new lens - the Tamron 70-200, f/2.8, Sony A-Mount. Have shot it a few times now and it is solid....though...maybe a little too solid...the thing weighs a ton. But, the photos are good and I'll assess in a another month or two.
Until then, here are my favorite shots from March....errrr.....I mean, April.
