This year I decided it was time to learn more about my new camera...actually it is not new.
I have had it since August of 2011. I just have not taken the time to use it much. It takes more work than my 'point and shoot' camera and I have not taken the time to use it much. Not only did I decide to use it exclusively, I decide to rent a zoom lens for the week as well.
Here are some of the photos I got with a 300mm prime lens. They are amazing!
Just think what I might have gotten if I really knew what I was doing???
Just outside my kitchen window, at the cabin, this beautiful Columbine is growing. It just came up on it's own. I think a 'little birdie' must have planted it for me.
This little Chipping Sparrow just hung around posing as I practiced.
The Monarchs and the Swallow Tails were enjoying the first blooms of the Lilacs for several days.
