Except this one ain’t little!
Last year, we saw several large carp toasting their fins in the sunshine just under the marina surface. Getting a picture was glarey at best, fuzzy the rest of the time, unless you count the one we saw dying the other week having been infected with ‘red fin’.
It was lying on its side when I saw it in the morning but still breathing, then when I came back from having a shower, a boating neighbour was trying to assist it keeping upright with his boat hook, and it was feeding. By 2pm, sadly it was dead, and a few hours later, some opportunist crows and gulls came for a taste, but left it to rot and sink.
Hubby has treated me early to my birthday present, and I am test driving a new camera.
It’s a Nikon Coolpix A10, with a real zoom, and I have progressed to not only downloading the software to my PC so that I can transfer my pictures, but to taking a couple of practice shots to see what it can do.
Because the detail and colour are so much more superior than from my little cheapie, with Hubby’s help I’ve had to experiment with image type. The lower group of three are GIF images, the top ones JPEG after conversion.
Jaws, eat your heart out!
I’ll get a picture of that kingfisher yet!
