PM sent. Wanting feedback on camera purchase.

Thank You
Dear Kathy. You explained in your blog the AF problems with your R5. I would like to understand what CPS did to overcome the problem. Did they do technical changes to lens or/end camera or were it only the advised settings that solved the problem. My camera + RF 100-500 have the same problem. Thanks on beforehand for your answer, Wim Berends Bird photographer!
The Brazosport Birders voted to call it quits. We lasted 45 years and I was a member for 44 of them. Good run but over.
Happy Birthday, Kathy!!!
In this shot of this Hummingbird shows it taking the cinnamon wool from the stalk of the cinnamon fern to make its nest!!

My goal as a businesswoman is to promote photography and the natural world through teaching. When people understand photography they can enjoy it for a lifetime. When people experience the natural world they will work to preserve it for future generations. Photography has been my passion since I was a child. Then my world centered around playing outside but as a young adult I morphed into a full-f

Northern Harrier yesterday at the Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge on the Upper Texas Coast. This harrier made several passes over the field. I took a little over 200 shots and this was one of my favorites. Canon R5, 100-500mm RF lens, 1.4x extender, ISO 800, 1/2500 shutter. #canonr5 #canonphotography

I have a hard time seeing a big difference in this instance between Adobe Camera Raw Noise Reduction and Topaz DeNoiseAI. Canon R5, ISO 1600, cropped 66% of the original RAW file. The Canon R5 handles ISO 1600 really well for starters. Then the over-exposure was in the field so no need to add more noise in processing.

This is not one of my greatest photos but it's a pretty cool bird. Green Ibis in northern Costa Rica at the Caño Negro Wildlife Refuge. I've seen it once or twice in the nearly 20 years of visiting Costa Rica but never have I captured a clear photo. Finally!! Canon R5, 100-500mm RF lens, 1.4x extender, hand-held from a boat.

Our photo tour to Costa Rica was the first week in November and I'm finally getting around to posting photos. We took a lot of photos on the trip but it appears processing will take longer. There are photos from Day 1 and Day 2 in the northern part of Costa Rica. Thanks Strabo Photo Tour Collection for a perfect journey to Costa Rica. #costaricabirds #costaricabirds Great Kiskadee, Great Egret with turtle, Goeffroy's spider monkey, and clay-colored thrush.

I got to teach face-to-face, in-person photography class over the weekend. A first since March 2020. Hummingbirds at Kleb Woods Nature Preserve in Tomball, Texas. Hot and sticky but lots of fun. This young male ruby-throated hummingbird has one red feather on his gorget and he's flaunting it. Canon R5, 100-500mm RF lens, 1.4x extender, 1/500th shutter, f/10. #hummingbirdphotography #rubythroatedhummingbird #canonr5 #canonpro
