State-of-the-Art Z9 On December 24th, 2021, I was pleased to receive my copy of the much anticipated state-of-the-art Nikon Z9 mirrorless camera, the manufacturer’s newest flagship “image-making machine”. Over the days following receipt I’ve configured and worked with the instrument, often during challenging lighting and environmental conditions [temps ranging from 7º to 14º F, contrasty as well as low light levels and rain/snow storms. While I haven’t yet come close to tapping the full capacity of the camera’s features, it is proving to be an outstanding product and tool. Kudos, Nikon! ~ Anecdote and Idaho Wildlife/Nature images, State-of-the-Art Z9 © Jerry L. Ferrara

Northern Flicker – In A Hurry In The Flurry

Northern Flicker

In A Hurry In The Flurry During the recent heavy snowstorm, this Northern Flicker [a member of the Woodpecker clan], was caught at the feeding tray. Diligently digging in the deep white mantle with its prominent beak didn’t produce anything in the line of fare. The fruitless search seemed only to frustrate the creature. He was in a hurry in the flurry But found the fare wasn’t there Hope your holiday meal works out better than his. BTW, he did eventually get a meal after the “peanut fairy” cleaned off the snow and replenished the store 😉 MERRY CHRISTMAS to all our family and friends. ~ Jerry and Vicki ~ Anecdote and Northern Flicker capture, In A Hurry In The Flurry © Jerry L.
