Four and Twenty

Its spring and the birds are back! I’ve been anxious to get out with my new lens to make some pictures of blackbirds, so I visited Cutler Reservoir at sunset.

I am amazed at how the redwing and yellow headed blackbirds can balance on such flimsy perches:

As for the lens, it’s not the 500mm I’ve wished for (I can dream), but it will be fun to test in a variety of situations and I do love the depth of field it provides. For example, these cattails closer to the road stand out against the blurred reeds further away:
