2019-01-20 – Nature Photography – Our Backyard Friends

The forecast for the day was on and off rain showers, which eliminate walking and taking outdoor pictures. Therefore I took Dianne’s suggestion to take today’s PICTURES of our Backyard Friends, a Squirrel and Scrub Jay which liked eating some nuts we leave for them. I had to wait sometime before they both decided to show up, the good news they did show up. The negative part of taking the photos is that I did not have a longer lens for my Sony SLT-A77, maybe I should have used my Panasonic DC-ZS70 or Panasonic Lumix DC-FZ80 camera. There is always – next time!

The Camera setting for the Sony SLT-A77V with a Sony 75-300mm F4.5-5.6 lens was:

  • Metering Mode: Auto
  • Drive Mode: Single shot
  • Shooting Mode: Aperture Priority Mode
  • Aperture: f/5.6
  • ISO Setting: 320 to 1600
  • Focus Mode: Single Shot.

Below is the complete set of photos taken:
