. . . how about some random Nikon D7500 photos?

These are all shot around our house using the Nikon D7500 and either the 70-300mm kit lens or the 105mm macro lens. Most of them, at the full zoom.

Actually, these next two shots were an experiment of sorts; same ISO and same zoom, with default aperture for the respective lenses; one is the 70-300mm kit lens shot at 200mm zoom, and the other is the 70-200mm f/2.8 lens. See if you can tell them apart without peeking at the data.

Kind of difficult to tell, eh? Well, here are close to 100% crop of the two (or as near as I can get them).

The lighting was slightly different because of passing clouds, but still informative.

The second of each shot is the expensive lens (multiple hundreds $ more than the kit lens).

I took these from my front porch and at a distance of approximately 100 ft (horizontal) and maybe 30 ft in elevation from my position. Therefore . . . about 105 feet between the camera and the bird.

I took these next shots considerably closer.

I like the flowers grabbing the water drops . . . it reminds me I’d like to buy a crystal globe and that I’d better hop to it.

This next shot is curtesy of the manual focus ring at the end of the 70-300mm lens.

This next one started out about 15 feet away but got progressively closer.

Normally, dragonflies take to their wings if I even think about getting closer. Not this one . . .

Uh-oh . . . I’m getting sleepy and making errors. Let me link a few more photos and then call it a day.

That’s an example of the flower and what I presume are seeds on the Magnolia tree in front.

If Daddy Longlegs had wings . . . they wouldn’t look like that.

OK, positively the last shot . . .

Condensation inside the hummingbird feeder. It looks kind of neat. no?

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
