Eläimellistä menoa ... Behaving like animals

Olen tuhlurityttö. Kevät tulee ja sen mukana monet linnut ja nisäkkäitäkin saattaa bongailla ihka elävinä paremmin kuin muutamaan kuukauteen. Marssin siis kameraliikkeeseen ja ostin tehokkaamman putken. Nyt olen onnellinen Canon zoom 55-250 mm:sen putken vakaimella (IS) omistaja. Silläpä se kuukin niin hyvin onnistui edellisessä postauksessani, joskin myönnän lisänneeni kuvaan kontrastia ja vähentäneeni siitä valoa.

Nyt olen harjoitellut sillä etenkin lintukuvausta ja rakastan tätä putkea.

I'm a big spender. The spring is on its way and with it many a bird species and many mammals will also be easier to spot live and well a lot more often than during the past few months. Hence I marched into a camera shop and purchased a more effective lense for myself. Now I am the happy owner of a Canon zoom 55-250 mm IS lense. That enabled me to take that good moon shot in my previous post, allthough I confess that I did add contrast and removed light from the picture.

Now I've been testing it to shoot birds in particular and I love this new lense.

Mistä siirrymmekin sutjakkaasti omiin pikku eläimiini ... Which will bring us swiftly on to my own little animals

Photobucket
Sillä ne käyttäytyvätkin välillä kuin todelliset ELÄIMET ... For they behave at times like real ANIMALS

Vai mitä mieltä olette mieltymyksestä hevosenkakkaan? ... Or what do you think of their love of horse poo?

Oh, these are great. I think you'll have a lot of fun with your new lens. Looks like it does a great job! I have a 18-200 mm lens and it is very versatile. By the way, your SWF post are terrific! Enjoy the weekend...

Very nice photos :) And of course your lovely dogs are the most beautiful...

Du har fått deg en skikkelig zoom forstår jeg! Så flotte nærbilder av fuglene, særlig de endene var nydelige! Jeg bedriver tiden med å lete etter et speilrefleks kamera, for det står øverst på min ønskeliste!

Og du - det der med hunder som spiser heste"poo", det er det mange som gjør. Bare ikke min lille tass! Han finnes ikke redd hester, men han går langt unna den greia der ja! Og jeg er jo glad for det....

Nice photos, how fun to have a new camera lens. I've never seen a hooded crow before, but we have many many mallards here in Seattle. I almost fell out of my chair laughing at that last pic/caption!

Hienoja eläinkuvia. Varsinkin pidän noista lintujen kuvista. Itsekin niitä yritän aina välillä kuvata lintuja, mutta kun ne ovat niin nopeita, niin harvoin kuvat onnistuu. Varis-sarja on hauska.

Remarkable photos... Your lens is perfect!
I think you did a fine purchase!
You will have a lot of good photos to come from this lens!!
I love the colors on the ducks... beautiful!

Success with bird photos. Well, concerning about that horse, maybe it has spring in the mind and is dreaming from very nice opposite sex horse. Lol.

My favourites are the ones of the mallards and the woodpecker. I love the reflections and the textures that the long lens gives you!!!
And of course the dogs are wonderful, too, horse poop or not.
