Meet Aubrey. Aubrey is a Lionhead Rabbit. Her white mane swirls around her face, much of the time obscuring her eyes and gathering dust and dirt from her surroundings. She had just cleaned off her face when I took this photograph. A few minutes before, her white mane was covered with dirt from the daisies she was investigating. She loved to scratch on the Scottish moss I brought for her to sit on during the photo shoot and the daisies were a treat to nibble. Aubrey belongs to my friend Carly’s friend, Taelor.
I just got a new Nikon Z6 mirrorless camera and this was my first opportunity to use the new camera. It performed flawlessly. I used my F mount 105mm f/1.4 lens and the FTZ adaptor so I could use it on the Z6. I was uncertain I would embrace mirrorless cameras but I have. Besides their small size, these new Nikon mirrorless cameras allow one to quickly modify settings in the camera without taking the eye away from the viewfinder. That is a huge advantage. The Z6 is my second mirrorless camera. I also have a Nikon Z7. The Z6 has a lower resolution than the Z7 and is less expensive but with few exceptions it is almost identical and has most of the features of the Z7. I’m not relinquishing my DSLR, the Nikon D5, which is my main camera body but I love the Z’s!
