When engaged in behavioral interactions, the Harlequin Duck gives distinctly unducklike squeaks, the source of one of its local names: sea mouse. More info on Harlequins –https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Harlequin_Duck/overview


Tamron USA SP 150-600mm VC + Lumix GH4

Vesper Sparrow at Troy Meadows NJ

Yesterday was my first day out in the field using the Metabones T Smart Adapter.  I am using the Metabones with my arsenal of lenses for the Canon EF mount in order to pair them with my Panasonic Lumix GH4 and G7.  I think this can be a great combination for wildlife videography especially given the GH4’s large crop factor for 4K filming of 2.49x!  The effective reach of my Tamron SP 150-600mm VC G2 is nearly 1500mm which can be very effective for filming small or distant wildlife such as birds.
