New lens



It not easy to hand hold a 600mm lens. I started the learning curve this afternoon.

Yes. The contemporary. I am heading to Lake Okeechobee tomorrow to try to shoot photos of blue bills before they go home. I needed a little practice before I head out there

Re: New lens

Yes, I have the mono pod but yesterday I was shooting hand held because that is what I end up doing so much of to get Bird in Flight pix. I'm gonna be on Lake Okeechobee at sunrise tomorrow to see what I can put the big lens on...then Shark Valley on Saturday. That will help get me used to the big lens...maybe

Today the ducks compensated for my greater range by staying further away
