A Cuddle and a Kiss (Eight Photographs)

If you look at this series you will see why I took over 100 photos of these wood ducks in spite of the bad light. In Tuesday’s post I mentioned that photographers always want their photos to tell a story. Action photography where you have little time to adjust or check your results on the back screen poses a challenge in DSLRs. In this regard the what you see is what you get (WYSIWYG) electronic viewfinders of mirror-less cameras are a boon and it’s one reason why many people are switching from DSLRs. None of the mirror-less cameras that I have tried to date completely replace DSLRs but they are coming close. These photos were taken with my DSLR which I am still using for nature photography.

  7. Presumably for internet reasons, only the top half of the fourth photo loaded. My evil mind extrapolated that as the fact you’d censored the one where they ‘got a room’.

    Great series.

    I’m moving up soon to an ILC camera (my current camera is a 1″ sensor bridge). As much as I’d love the full frame of a DSLR I’ve decided on a APS-C mirrorless because of the EVF. I’m used to them now, and I really need the aids for manual focusing.

  12. The image of the wood duck laying its head on the chest of the other is so amazing. Never knew they could ‘cuddle.’ ❤

  14. I think the DSLR (and telephoto lens) takes a much better bird shot, but the Sony a6000 ‘mirrorless’ on the Intelligent Auto setting is brilliant at Sunsets.
