Yesterday, my new lens arrived. It was a yippy skippy moment. I pulled it out and started chasing my cat, Mouse, around the house. She has forgiven me because of copious amounts of dried salmon.
During vacation, I worked on my bird series and found that I missed a huge number of shots. I just couldn't get close enough. My Nikkor 55-300mm F/4.5-5.6G ED VR AF-S DX just didn't make it. It just didn't have the reach.
These are the first of, hopefully, many shots. I haven't even begun to put the lens to the test. The only thing I have figured out is that it's really not a handheld lens. I guess I'll be pulling out my monopod out.
Stay warm...we are expecting 4-8 inches of snow....
