Maybe time to expand my radius a bit, as a three-hour walk didn’t yield a single click of a bird. In fact, the only thing with wings was a tiny bee (first shot below).
The more “natural” the local experts conspire to create open spaces to be, the more sterile they become. Had to go to a previous walk for the dragonfly (second shot below), which was taken using the RF 85mm f/2, which I think I mistakenly referred to the other day as an f/1.8! 😦
Anyway, only Mother Nature truly knows how to do “natural.”
