Lens Envy

All wildlife photographers are stricken with it one time or another. The need, the want, the desire for a longer focal length. Something to turn those spec birds into usable images.

I succumbed to it recently.

And took this shot.

A small mushroom of an un-identified species (mushroom ID is hard!).

If you look closely (go ahead and bigafy it!) you'll see a second mushroom above the first and inside the stump.

A pedestrian image for sure. But taken at a focal length of 600mm! I'm playing with the big boys now!

As a customer of B&H Photo I receive marketing emails, including the daily specials. And one such special caught my eye, a Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary Lens. The special part was that it was $250+ off the regular price, with extras. Making it less than 1/10th the cost of a Canon 600mm lens. And it was recently my birthday so ...

... Happy Birthday to Me!

While the mushroom was the first thing I shot, it's not the first image with the new lens to appear on the blog. The previous three posts were all shot with this lens. I think I'm gonna like it.
