Playing with Superzoom 3

Uploaded: July 19, 2020 | Entered: July 19, 2020 06:23:40


Looking for birds close by, I noticed something flitting around in the top of the mimosa tree about 100 feet away. Training the lens on it at max zoom, I saw a bird flitting about. Tried to get a shot and thought I'd failed, but found it to be a bluegray gnatcatcher. A nice surprise! 35mm equiv. 3000mm, handheld
