Oshie's World

Life Through A Golden Eye



Wild Animals (sort of)

Today we enjoyed the Los Angeles Zoo. It has been a long, long time since I have been to a zoo so it was a lot of fun. I had never seen a tiger, lion or eagle in person. I can check them all 

What a beautiful creature. We still prefer Oshie.

This Lion had the right idea in the SoCal summer sun.

off the list now. Here are two of the photos. I am working with limited equipment so more will come when I get back to my main computer in NC.

Mississippi Kite?

I took this photograph early Friday morning of last week. Initially I thought it might be a Red Shouldered Hawk because they are always around the neighborhood but then I notice the coloring was different and it let me get a lot closer. After a little internet search I am going to guess Mississippi Kite but I could be wrong.

Shot with my Canon 7d Mark 2 and Tamron 70-300mm lens at 300mm. Processed in Lightroom and Photoshop.

I see you!

Tenacious Little Bugger

I took this shot maybe a week ago early in the morning. The Mocking Bird was continually dive bombing the Hawk perched at the top of the tree. Initially the Hawk ignored the much smaller bird but the little birds tenacity defeated the Hawk’s size. Once the Hawk was finally fed up he took off into the woods. My take away from this…I need a longer lens ha-ha.

I assume the Hawk was thinking… really?

Day 25 – Ring Billed Seagull

So I have fallen off the wagon with the posting a picture everyday self challenge but I am going to do my best to get going again.


Taken with my Canon 7d mk2 and Tamron 70-300 lens.
