Some more shots with the GX7. It was sunny this afternoon, for a change, by the time I got into Troy, so there was some nice light on some of the buildings. Unfortunately, it was still variably cloudy when I took the nature shots before that...

I wish I had a better 300mm lens...but a tripod would have helped too

Nice!

The above 3 are my favorites.  The lower two are very delicate, typical  of spring, as the buds are starting to burst giving a variety of pastels.   Some Art Style (That I no longer remember) mimics that texture/colour.

The first one, of the hawk, was taken at a good distance, something like the Sandhill that I took last year.  Anders W. and minniev  helped me a lot to understand the nature of that bokeh in a few exchanges:

Several of us had a rousing good discussion with the sharing of links and good ideas!  

I am sure that reading the above will help.  At least it will convince you that a tripod would be of minimal value in the case of the hawk, (shot at 1/800 sec).  ( Looking at that bokeh, I am guessing that the brush is about 10-20 yards behind the hawk. And the hawk is at about 60 yards away.  Right?)

I hope that this is helpful.

PS  Did you find any wild hazelnuts in your  travels?
