Monkeys and an owl

Omaha Zoo Monkey/Bokeh Example

The first two shots were taken at the Omaha Zoo with my Canon Eos 6D, a full-frame DSLR with a 24-105mm zoom at the full 105mm setting. The first photo I'm posting because when viewed on a Windows system, it exhibits really cool Bokeh. Unfortunately on my Mac systems, it's much less evident. I find that curious.

Omaha Zoo/Lonely Monkey

I thought this was cute. Poor little monkey, all alone and sad.

Baby Owl

I shot this on-campus yesterday in Alamogordo, NM. On Friday our school photographer told me about spotting an owl nest on-campus and showed me pix, including one of a baby on the ground. The curious thing was its right eye was totally clouded over: it was blind in one eye and our school is the state school for the blind! When Carla photographed it, the baby was lying on its left side. Somehow it got in to the tree, but again was lying on its left side, which makes me wonder if its left leg is injured. I don't know if the bird can fly, but it was not in the tree that the nest was in, it was one over.

This shot was taken with my pocket camera, a Panasonic Lumix LX7 zoomed to the 35mm equivalent of 105mm. I tried the digital zoom which was effectively 190ish mm, but it was a JPEG and the compression just ruined the sharpness of the image.
