Nature Photography

I was recently able to purchase a new lens 
for my nature photography, a Tamron 150-600 G2!

Here are a few of my favorite shots with this new lens which
I am still learning how to use.

 Blue Darners in a mating wheel photographed at Rancho San Rafael Park.


Vivid Dancer Damselfly from Rancho San Rafael Park.

Blacktailed Jackrabbit in Reno, Nevada.





Immature Turkey Vultures photographed in the field next to where I live.

Golden Eagle in Reno, Nevada.


Red Tailed Hawks in the same field.

American Avocet at Swan Lake in Nevada.


Snowy Egrets photographed at Virginia Lake in Reno, Nevada.

I haven't had this lens for a whole month yet and I'm having a great time with it.
Should have lots of ideas for painting this Winter.  :)

New Painting Hawk Wings: Work in Progress 11


Slow progress still which is fine at this stage of the painting. Some days I can see what the painting still needs and other days I can't. Here is where I am right now.

New Painting Hawk Wings: Work in Progress 9

Slow progress now. I just do a little each day and some days I just 
look at it trying to decide what I'm going to do next.

Here it is as it sits right now.

New Painting Hawk Wings: Work in Progress 7

Chipping away at it slowly now. I decided last night I didn't like the bottom of the sky in the picture. So I decided to go with dark storm clouds there. That gives me a chance for a warm/cool contrast in the painting. Here is the painting as it is now.
