Some random pics with my new Nikon AF-P 70-300mm 1:4.5-6.3GED

I finally bought a new camera and a couple of lenses!!!

I upgraded from my D5300 and 55-300mm lens to a D7500, and an Nikon AF-P 70-300mm 1:4.5-6.3GED (no VR), and a Nikon AF-S 10-24mm 1:3.5-4.5GED. So far I am very happy with what I got.

Of course I would love a good 200-600mm lens but I have other things I need that kind of money for right now.

I know I could have gotten a good long lens for a few bucks more than I spent on the 10-24mm, but I want to try more landscape photography so I sacrificed the long lens...for now.

Anyway I wanted to post up some photos taken with the 70-300mm because I have seen a lot of people on this forum tell others that 300mm will not work for wildlife, and that is just not true. While I do not claim to be a great photographer, (I am in it to get outside and have fun) I do manage to get some pretty decent photos with my stubby 300mm lenses sometimes. I just hate to see people come here for advise and get discouraged and not try because someone told them not to even bother unless they can afford to buy expensive long lenses and cameras.

No offense to all you rich folks, but it's not all about the money.

Comments and suggestion are always welcome!
