I took a short walk in between rain showers this morning and took the above picture of our resident Heron. I didn’t have my longest lens so I didn’t get as good a picture as I might have. If you notice, the size of this picture is smaller than I normally use in my blog thus this image won’t print well; but it looks OK on the screen.
I wasn’t looking to get any particular pictures since I was just walking for my knees and trying a different arrangement for carrying my camera with the 18 – 135 mm lens and lens hood. I used a wrist strap and carried the camera in a Domke F-5XB bag. That arrangement is compact and worked well for me and I will be using it more. I carried the camera in the bag rather than hanging from a sling strap in case it rained hard. No use in testing the weather resistance of the camera and lens in a worst case scenario; but I didn’t worry about having rain drops from the trees hitting it while I had the camera in my hand when shooting.
