Today was a bit rainy, but I decided to not let that stop me. So my friend and I headed to the Ecotarium in Worcester. I've been there a few times so I knew there were some nice exhibits indoors as well. I headed there equipped with my X-T1 and 60mm macro. This is the slowest lens to focus in the Fuji line-up, but I was curious to see how the new X-T1 would handle it.
I must say I was very pleased. It did hunt from time to time, but it was not as hesitant as I was used to. Actually I even bumped into my cousin and daughter there. Its super family friendly place and I can't think of many other places in Worcester that fun to go to on a rainy day.
This is a Red Fronted Macaw. He was very friendly and kept walking around.
This little guy was just hanging out on a stick.
This guy looks awesome, but I'm glad there is glass between us.
I was lucky enough to be there when they did a presentation/introduction of this little guy.
Ha. He looks like he's ready to go for a stroll.
And of course I had to look around for some details. There really is a lot to see at the Ecotarium. So wandering around I saw some interesting things. There are lots of educational stations as well as interactive stations to learn hands on. Often you will find dozes of children walking around having a blast. So of course I didn't want to interfere with their fun. But I did find some details to capture. Here are a few.
This goes to show that you can hand me a camera and a macro lens and I'll be happy for hours. I'm really happy with these results and am very pleased with the Fuji system. Today was a shorter visit to the Ecotarium, but I will be back as there is so much more to see.
