Still looking at photos from the last drive up from Eilat. I’ve been playing with my new camera, it is taking some time to get comfortable — in large part because I’ve been using professional Canon cameras, and this is a consumer grade Panasonic. I bought it in part because of its lens, which covers almost the full range from macro to distance without any complaints. Along with being lighter, I don’t have to change lenses. I will learn, and it is all good.
I had some trouble getting this bird to stand still between the wires, so I could take his picture without interference. These two shots are the best I managed.
And below is the female (there were only the two of them).
Everything is still challenging, but I am learning to do things like type, and eat, with two half hands. If either of my hands were fully functional… but there it is. I am working on building up strength in my legs and along with hydrotherapy I am trying to get to the beach at least once a week. I don’t know how functional I will get, but I am going to be better than this. At least sometimes. 😉
