    This event was very interesting and interesting for me in my first experience. It was very important to see the behavior and expressions of people on the street, especially with the opportunity to look at them in the eye.

    In between rain showers, I caught this Australian King Parrot having a quiet feed. I shot it on a Canon R7 with a Sigma 150-600 mm zoom 1/500 sec at f8 ISO 2500. It was an overcast day but I have found to get a nice sharp bird shot I need at least 1/500 sec and F8 is the sweet spot of the lens. I used to worry about ISO but the R7 and a bit of Topaz magic crushes any noise.

With my homemade solar filter attached to my camera, I took a series of photos of the sun during the eclipse. After processing my sun photos, I was disappointed to see that the moon only showed up as a black hole and not its proper form. I am an avid shooter of Astro photography and have several photos of the moon taken from my backyard and multiple other locations. I
