Today I made my first fall trip of the year over to the McLane Creek Nature Trails to see what was going on with the wildlife. After the abundance of spring and summer, I was a bit disappointed to not see much more than a bunch of mallards, but I guess that’s to be expected. Actually we did see a few other things. One thing I had hoped to capture was a Belted King Fisher. I did see a couple of them, but never in a spot we could photograph them.
A more important reason for the trip was to try out my new Fujifilm X-T2 camera for the first time on wildlife. I used it last weekend to shot our daughter’s wedding, but shooting at 56mm vs. 400mm makes a big difference. So here are my first telephoto shots out of the X-T2.
