Today In The Garden

I’m going to be doing lots of zooming in on the wildlife on my upcoming trip. I didn’t even know which lens to use until I talked to a guy at Adorama last week. Turns out my 55-300 lens will suffice. But after talking with him, I decided I needed to add a wide angle lens to capture the spectacular scenery. I settled on a Tokina 11-16mm F/2.8 ATX Pro DX II.  It’s not here yet, so I practiced with the 55-300 in the garden this morning.

Here’s a shot for color.

And here is a series of shots I took of a bug and a bloom. I’m not sure what kind of bug he is, but I like him.

This camera is amazing. I can’t wait to use it in the Great Bear Rainforest!
