A Couple Randoms From The Wetlands
Posted By: joe.penn, 07-05-2012, 09:35 AM

Here are a couple random shots from one of my favorite places to shoot.

[Very Large] Snapping Turtle - Wide Open @ f/4.0, ISO-6400 (was getting dark on the trail)

Osprey - Cropped quite a bit, he was pretty far away (and still saw me), still can't seem to get close(er) to them this year, very frustrating!

EDIT: Forgot to add the frog on the original post, I think this is what the turtle was looking for...

EDIT (2): Guess I can add this one also - a strange flare (I guess from the lens) is evident between his wings.
Boat-tailed Grackle

That turtle is one tough looking critter! Enjoyed all of your shots here, very fine shooting!

Hey Joe, thanks so much for posting the information on the wetland inhabitants. A very impressive list. You could spend the rest of your life there and not run out of subjects to photograph! I guess the Bobolink is a grassland bird. I had to walk through a meadow where they would be by the hundreds swaying on ends of long timothy grass singing away. I then walked through a small forest and down to the extensive wetlands... so the Bobolinks did not make the list. The meadow I used to walk through is now a housing development. I wonder what happened to all those birds.

I look forward to more of your images.

btw, I feel exactly the same way about the teleconverter. However, when I used it with the tamron 2.8 macro for macros I got incredibly good shots.
