Driving home from town I pass this farm almost daily, and today there was a large group of Holstein heifers out relaxing in the sun. I couldn't resist a few pictures, even if I had to use my iphone for them.
And one little bird pictures, a male Goldfinch in summer plumage. I was lucky enough to snap it quickly, and get good focus (as long as I didn't crop it any more than I did!)
I did end up purchasing a small back-up camera, and chose a Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS50. The deciding factors were a small pocket size, and a viewfinder. There isn't a lot of choice if you want a viewfinder today, but for outdoor photography I think it's essential! Thanks for all the advice the other day when I mentioned this.
