Look at the distortion!
I thought my camera could do it through these old windows with "wavy" glass panes. Nope, it didn't work, but I kind of like it anyway.

At first I had the 55 mm lens ready - and too bad.
A fox crossed a property nearby and we were too far away. Though, when I blew up the picture you can make him out, if barely.
|A fox? No - that is Molly!|
|A crow watching us ...|
|..our approach makes her wary...|
|...and she takes off. Click, click, click|
The setting was with zoom, on moving objects and multiple shots, but I didn't manage to get it really focused. :((
No good combination. With a zoom I could get "closer up to the object", but it didn't work so good with the movement. I have yet to figure out how to do 3D tracking of a moving object.
Well, I have to practise, practise, practise.
Then we went down to the water. The sun broke through the clouds and I just loved the mirroring greys and blues on the water's surface.
I didn't see the gull down at the water's edge. Do you?

Hope you liked my little excursion as much as I did. Thank you for your company.
And if you like, take a look at the second part of our journey in January 2006. To Tuscon and Bisbee, Guadalupe Park and Carlsbad Caverns we went....
