Evil House Sparrow, Passer domesticus

Evil House Sparrow, Passer domesticus

The first posted image from the great and glorious Nikon 500mm Reflex Mirror Lens. In one lap around the lake I took 200 pictures. Trying to hand-hold this beast is quite a challenge, it’s not heavy, it’s just hard to hold still enough to get it to work right. I have some ideas and will show them to you as I test them.

In the mean time, I wanted to show off this little monster I found. Ain’t he cute?

  • Congrats on the new lens, Mitch. Nice one, and I look forward to more!

  • Kat

    You’re welcome, and thanks in return! 🙂

    The lens sure has a great DOF to it. The various out-of-focus layers as seen in the branches gives a great feel to the image.

  • That’s a fantastic lens. It’s made the normally placid humble house sparrow look like the devil incranate.
