70-300mm CX arrived yesterday: first shots with BBIF
1 month ago

I ordered mine in Germany and was very lucky to have it arrived within a week. I was working at home but I took some time - a bit more then can be justified - to do some first tests in the backyard. I was pleased to find that it had no problems finding gulls pretty high in the sky and focus on them. Then I saw the bumblebees above the wild honeysuckle I planted. Bumblebees in flight. Bumblebees can be challenging to photograph: black and hairy in the face, just like my cat. This one however showed off his best parts: the long proboscis eager to find a new flower (or was it just slow in retracting it).

Anticipation

and the big hairy butt taking a comfy seat on the stamen:

Comfy seat

So this was my first really contributing post here. Hope you'll enjoy too!
