My day is complete – Finches are my favorite bird species!
To see not one, but two Purple Finches sharing the thistle feeder this morning made my heart race and I can’t stop smiling.
The photo was taken with my Pentax K10 DSLR camera with a 55-300mm lens.
I wanted so badly to get a new camera this year – the K10 was my wedding gift from Larry in 2007 and new models have much higher resolution. I was looking at upgrading to a K70 model and almost pulled the trigger. Almost.
SO Bill and I talked about options and of course his advice to me was, “If you want it, get it.” He’s such a bad influence…
But ultimately I decided to purchase a couple of lenses and make the decision about the camera upgrade later. The good news is that if I decide to go for the K70 the lenses are interchangeable.
Now as I write this post I see the Amazon truck pulling away and my 18-135mm lens (used) should be on the porch. You know that I’ll be checking it out to see if it works – so look for more pictures!
XO Lisa ❤️
Update: The used lens didn’t automatically focus, so it’s back to the drawing board! Amazon returns here it comes back to you…
With autumn in full swing (finally!), it’s wonderful to find this post and experience the beauty of nature’s finches.
