Project 365 3-4 through 3-20-2013


Welcome back! I am all caught up as of todays post! Yay me!! Last week, I treated myself to a new lens. I got the Canon 100-400mm telephoto lens so I cant take shots of birds a little easier. I went out over the weekend and several other days to try it out. I think I am in love. Cant wait for the weather to get a little nicer. I am so excited for spring, migrating birds, bugs and butterflies! I plan on spending lots of time out in the woods taking lots of pictures. I have a few goals for this spring/summer.

1. Get a good shot of a Bald Eagle. I know where they are, I just need a little luck in getting just the right shot.

2. My Granddaughter Kileighs favorite bird is the Belted Kingfisher. I would like to get a close-up picture of one and have it blown up for her. I have lots of far off shots, but none frame worthy.

3. Bluebirds. One of the prettiest birds around. I want to get some good shots of them, in flight or just perching.

4. Hawks, I love them. I want to see lots of them and get good shots.

There you have it, my list of goals! Now, on to the pictures.

I think you're going to love the new lens. I picked up the 400/5.6 last spring and love it for birds.
