    Mikey Pics and an Update! :)

    So I got an early birthday gift, a brand new, upgraded Superzoom camera. It's like one step above a point and shoot, and one step below a DSLR. More specifically a Nikon L820. I am attempting to get into wilderness/wildlife photography for a blog I run, so I needed a better camera than just an underwater point and shoot with 5x zoom. This camera has 130x zoom! So it's almost as good as a DSLR, I just don't have to buy stupid extra lenses.

    Anyway, I finished my COLLEGE level MATH class with a B-, did you ever think I'd ever get a B of any sort in a college level math, because I didn't?

    These were taken a few hours ago at Allaire State Park here in NJ. Some are goofy and some he looks really obese in, but rest assured, he's not!






    He's tied up to a picnic table LOL he isn't off leash. That was also almost full-zoom so they're surprisingly super clear!
    Here's some assorted wildlife photos:



    Midflying! Not too bad!

    Anyways, I'll probably share more wildlife pictures with you as soon as I get them, or just my pictures in general. School starts in a week so I may not be on as much so I thought I'd post a few now.

    Mikey also says "HAPPY BELATED NATIONAL DOG DAY!"

    Wow! That makes me jealous I love photography...right now I have a Fujifilm Finepix S4500 with a 30X zoom, but I will never buy Fujifilm again. Every one I've ever had quit way too soon, and I got horrible service from the company.
    Those are some awesome pics! Thanks for sharing! I'm sure Mikey was begging you to stop taking pictures and untie him from the picnic table. Lol
    And Happy Early Birthday!!!

    How many times do we have to tell you, Mikey is NOT obese! Nor does he look it!!

    Happy Birthday, fantastic pressie. And thank you for sharing it with us! What a great set of shots. The ones of Mikey are so SHARP. My first digital camera is now 6+ years old, so much has improved. Now I am thinking . . . . lol. Just remember copying is the highest form of flattery (or something like that).

    Love the wildlife photos too. Seeing that in flight shot has me sold!

    Well done Alysser, I remember how nervous / concerned you were about Math. GREAT JOB!!!
    Thank you Karen, for fixing my siggy!
