    Want to say how much my wife and I enjoyed your presentation last night. Beautiful shots.

    Given that we both have Cannon 7Ds and what you did with a 100to400MM cannon lens, I am getting one also. I was going to get a 70 to 200 zoom and one day a 500mm. But given the cost of the 500mm, your route is a lot more pleasing to the significant other.

    What would you recommend for a macro lens and also a wide angle, and all around “tourist” len? Can you substitute a 100-400 zoom for a 70-200 zoom that I originally thought was good for an all-around lens. I do have a very nice “portrait lens”, fixed at 50mm that was just purchased with the camera. This is a serious “grandkid lens”.

    We had a prior committement for Saturday’s outing otherwise, please keep us posted for future outings/events.

  2. Thanks Dennis. Glad that you enjoyed the class. You’re going to like the 100-400. This lens may be too long at 100mm for an all around “tourist” lens. I’ve got a Canon 17-40 that worked well for a trip to China. Something in between may be best for a walk around lens. I don’t have a macro lens but have heard great things about the Canon 100 and 180mm macro lenses.

  4. Congratulations on your new 500mm. I really enjoyed your write up and can feel the excitement in your words. I laughed when you said you almost hugged the UPS guy.
    That was cute.

    You should try Brazoria National Wildlife Refuge soon. I just made a trip out there and the Wood Storks are plentiful right now. They are located at the last pond (in the back) on the Auto Trail. As a matter of fact, I never seen so much bird activity as there is now. Believe it or not, for some odd reason there were no mosquitoes. Not a one! The spraying of the area must be working. Again congrats on your new tool.

    • Thanks Sandy. I was like a kid waiting for Christmas morning to arrive. Thanks about the Brazoria NWR tip. I’ll have to check it out soon.

  5. I’m so glad I was in your Featherfest 2015 Ground Pod Field Trip! What a difference getting down low makes in the photo POV. Thanks for all the tips & techniques.

    • Thanks Caren. I’m glad that you enjoyed the trip. Shooting down low is the only way to go for shore birds. Hope that you get a chance to do it again sometime.

    • Thanks Jane for your kind words. I haven’t met any Timmis’ outside my immediate family. Very interesting. Maybe birds are in our DNA…
