Urban Wildlife - Golden Gate Park, San Francisco
Lens: Pentax 18-135 Camera: K5 Photo Location: San Francisco, CA 
Posted By: sealonsf, 11-14-2016, 05:27 PM

I had quite the surprise when taking photos of ducks in a small lake in Golden Gate Park this weekend - I turned around and two raccoons were approaching me from the lake. I had just a few seconds to snap some photos before a dog came by and scared the raccoons back into the water. Raccoons can attack so it's best to keep your distance. But these two totally charmed me. I'm a sucker for cute.

It was one of those beautiful fall days that make visitors to San Francisco want to move here.






6. And to end the day - looking West from the Interstate 80 Freeway on our way home to San Francisco - taken out the window of a moving car.

Some great shots there sealonsf! The sharpness of that 18-135 is incredible on the K5. I have something to aim for now with my recent 18-135 acquisition.

Thanks! The 18-135 is a good lens - the problem is that I hardly ever want to take it off my camera so my other lenses are feeling neglected.
