La Plume Noire Photography

Birds of a Feather

I return back to Hong Kong once more. Indeed, I go back once a year, just to stuff myself with food and shop around. This year, I have decided to upgrade my camera and buy myself a new telephoto lens, 70-200mm 4.0. I have always said to myself, “If only I’ve had a better zoom lens”; well now I do. It’ll be the perfect addition for photographing animals up-close. Additionally, the camera lens is lightweight, which is a bonus.

In order for me to test out the lens, I have returned back to Wetland Park in Hong Kong. I decided to give bird watching a try. A new lens means that I can photograph wildlife closer. There should be plenty of birds during the winter season.

Overall, I would say the day had been a success. There were lots of birds to photograph. I even had a client who perched beside me, wanting a photograph. The 70-200mm is a beautiful sharp lens, well worth the purchase. Perhaps I’ll even explore the wetland park in London, I’m sure I could take some good shots over there. Anyhow, I hope you enjoy my first batch of wildlife photographs.

    So pretty! And I really want to Hong Kong, though my shopping-as-a-trip-excuse place is Taiwan 🙂 Hopefully next time I’ll be able to do both. Cute birds. The one with the pink dot reminds me of Japanese hipsters, somehow… maybe it’s the hairstyle? 😉
