    Wildlife through my/ your lense...

    I have a Nikon coolpix L310.
    Why did I buy it? Because it had the biggest discount and it looks good!
    I've noticed that the only decent pictures it (appears) to take, is when I use the zoom.

    Here are three pictures I took today in my garden.




    Just managed to chop the head a little bit...I was disappointed!






    So, let's be seeing pictures of wildlife you've taken in and around your property.

    Nice idea for a thread and good luck with it.

    From our recent trip to Mexico (marine life)




    And from a little place we keep in the middle of the state (Florida). A feeder goes off twice a day attracting some of the wildlife you’ll see below.












    And the neighborhood





    Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

    Although our garden is quite small, we seem to attract a broad variety of the local 'wildlife'. Sod's law of course, whenever we see something unusual, it's normally disappeared before I've got a camera or phone in hand.

    However, there have been occasion when I have got something. Firstly this lizard, which seemed quite unperturbed by my pointing a lens at it:



    and a Finlayson Squirrel that took up residence in one of our trees for a few months. Don't know what became of him, but he was entertaining doing acrobatics for much of the day:







    and finally our current 'guest' a frog that's been in a small pond in the front garden for the last couple of months, and doesn't look like he's planning on leaving soon. A projection on his nose has meant his nickname is 'Rhino':

    SL, Pag and Barrylad. Thanks for sharing and some great pics. Some of the 'zooms' are great...Why is it so easy to tell it's a zoom?
    Probably the proximity.
    Cheers, Chazza.

    Aperture setting controls the depth of field, and more pronounced when using a zoom lens on a large aperture setting. Understanding of 'exposure value' (EV) which is the combination of shutter speed and aperture size, and the effects of both, is the basis of all photography.

    But I'm certain you already knew that........

    I haven't even read the instruction manual!


    Anyway, here's one I took a few months back, that's when I realised that if I used the zoom and half pressed the button, the camera seemed to freeze the pic (hold it steady) I'm keeping with the zoom.
