Barn Owls and a purged lens collection
I've had a busy week further refining my lens collection - sold off my 70-210 beercan to an appreciative buyer. I also got very little money (and rightly so) for my original Minolta lens pair - the 35-80xi and 80-200xi power zooms that served me through high school and college photography courses and yearbook staff. (<sniff>). And, in the same day, I sold a recently-acquired Minolta 35-105 newer model zoom that worked fine but wasn't seeing much use.
All of this was to justify a new (used) purchase - Sony 70-300G...a more affordable stepping stone to the 70-400G that I ultimately hope to aquire.
Anyway, the night before I shipped off the beercan I took a farewell drive with it and got a couple of reasonable keepers at the wildlife management area near my home:
Hopefully more like this to come after the new glass arrives...
