Exploring Bird Photography

Over Christmas break I rented the Fuji 70-300 (FUJIFILM XF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 R LM OIS WR Lens) to explore using it for bird photography, a new area for me. It worked well, I found it to be a bit slow and not sharp unless using a tripod, but it worked well for my first experience.

As all rentals go, I had to send it back, but shortly after that my new telescope arrived, the Astrotech AT80EDT. It’s awesome for bird photography, I’m lucky that it can sit on the tripod and point at a popular tree right out my office window.

All photos taken with my Fuji Xt2.

We’ve had a Baltimore Oriole for the past 2 months, quite rare in Chesapeake, VA. And this little yellow rumped warbler has been a frequent visitor for a while now.
