Girl with the Long Lens

I don't think this counts as "wildlife" but Junko and I certainly had fun in her yard photographing a range of subjects. Memories of a great day!
Here's Junko's photo of me: https://365project.org/jyokota/challenges-and/2020-05-21
Thanks, Taffy -- it was SUCH a fun time together! And it's the only social thing I've done in 73 days. Let's hope for more socially-distanced visiting outdoors before too long.

Wow...another serious photographer with camera and quite the lens! And, then there is me and my iPhone...haha! I hope you both had a grand time! :)

Nice portrait. You both tote long lenses.
May 24th, 2020  
Goodness me you girls, such big lenses! Good to see you both.

Another fabulous professional with all the right gear. A lovely shot and composition of you and the beautiful maple tree. So wonderful that you could both enjoy each others company again.
May 24th, 2020  
gosh you both have some serious lens gear!

Nice to have a photo buddy for company in these times...

Lovely. I think Junko has the lens that I recently got from hubby as an advance birthday pressie! I love it. Such a nice photo of your friend.

@jamibann It was my last birthday present from my husband, too --- the 100-400. With all this backyard squirrel and bird photography this is the lens that stays on my camera 90% of the time.

@jyokota Yep it's the same one! I hired it for a week last year for Eagle photography and promised myself I'd get it one day. A year later ... it's in my bag! :-)

Two happy snappers!!

Nice to ‘see’ you and great you could see Taffy from afar.
May 24th, 2020  
lovely capture
May 24th, 2020  
A great shot - so near and yet in reality so far !
May 24th, 2020  
I don't know, @jyokota can be pretty wild given half a chance methinks! Lovely shot. Really like the two shots of the visit and it must have been so lovely to see each other's faces again in person.
May 24th, 2020  
lovely to see high quality photos of you both! Nice to get together.
May 24th, 2020  
Great shots of both of you. So glad you were able to catch up.
May 24th, 2020  
Wonderful you two had a play date, this is such a great portrait of Junko. I love it.
May 24th, 2020  
Great portrait image

Lens envy!
May 24th, 2020  
Looks like you were both set up for some serious photography.
May 24th, 2020  
Big lenses :) Nice portraits of you both
May 24th, 2020  
sounds like that meet up was such fun - although you both look to have had very serious intent with the long lenses. Lovely to see this cheerful portrait of @jyokota
May 24th, 2020  
nice to see you too, junko! what fun to be able to meet up with taffy :)
May 24th, 2020  
Looking pretty good—- 👌💕

Always love seeing the artists at work. Great capture of one of our more inspiring contributors. And glad you guys were able to get together and enjoy a little togetherness.

What a marvelous photo and "the perfect setting"!
May 25th, 2020  
It sounded like a day your both probably needed and thoroughly enjoyed Not sure how you life that lens up!

OMG, I've just finished commenting on Taffy's @taffy long lens, and then, look at you. What wonderful women and good friends you are. I've gone in the opposite direction equipment-wise. What can't be easily carried on a wrist-strap and shoot hand-held is off my list. So good to see the gear others use and enjoy the variations.

Great portrait. Junko looks great with these long lens.
May 25th, 2020  
That is some lens- but I figured it had to be as much with some of her shots I've seen!
May 25th, 2020  
Well, the two of you are pretty wild!
May 26th, 2020  
Great portrait and lens!
May 27th, 2020  
looking good, kiddo!
