Wildlife Photography

The only downside to our Pokhara adventure has been the cloudy and hazy weather, which has blocked our view of the Himalayas looming above, as well as the amazing night skies to be had here. I had been planning to use my new Nikkor 70-300mm f 4.5-5.6 VR lens to try out the methods I have been studying to capture deep space objects like the Andromeda galaxy. I purchased the lens with this in mind, and really had no idea the quality it could produce much closer to terra-firma. On a morning walk around the lake I began shooting insects and birds and was astounded at the clarity I could get from meters away. Here is a couple of the highlights. Enjoy!
