My Dream Camera Lens, Canon 500mm



I’ve fallen in love!  I’m renting my ultimate dream lens, the Canon 500mm f/4.  This lens is stunning.

I received the lens today mid-morning couldn’t wait to test it out on my Canon 7D.

I had just walked out in the backyard noticed a Squirrel.  Good enough for me.

Then I hear the unmistakable sound of the Carolina Chickadee (we’ve been seeing a big increase in this birds lately).

Time to try out the lens on Butterflies.  There were 3-4 Monarchs flying around, so I thought they would make good test subjects.

I’ve also noticed a new behavior that the Butterflies are exhibiting lately.  When they are feeding, they try to do so with their wings spread open and towards the sun.  It makes perfect sense as the temperatures are cooler and they need to stay as warm as possible to fly and feed.

I saw this Monarch in the picture below actually resting in our Pussy Willow tree.
