Having the camera at the ready is all it takes to capture the wildlife here. This was made with Sony a6000 which has exceptionally fast focus on auto; but, any camera will capture it with a little practice. This was set on Aperture Priority with only f/4.5 to shoot a different subject before these guys decided to do their dance. I could have used a little more depth of field, especially as the Shutter speed was 1/500 sec, but here it is …
Of course, sunrises and sunsets move a little slower so even your Point & Shoot will work or the smart phone.
We’re staying at the Lorelei Resort, a favorite when taking a break from the cold winter of the North Carolina mountains.
Maybe next winter you can join us for a few days and we can show you around the special haunts we’ve explored during the 30 years we spent here before the mountains. Maybe we should start a list.
Here’s a fellow that will sit still for a portrait. Why? This Woodstork is fishing near Clam Bayou where you can rent a kayak to explore the saltwater estuaries. He probably finds us as fascinating as we find him, close up.
