Testing my new Canon lens on nature…

I just received my new lens, Canon 100-400mm L II.  These were my first shots. I went out behind our condo and there was a lot of activity today.  Birds and gator. 

I kept my eye on the gator as I was photographing the birds.  I didn’t want to be surprised. 

Anyway, I’m happy so far with the lens.  Just need to get used to the size and weight of it.

Orchids in Black and White

Well it’s day 5 of 5 in the Black and White challenge.
Thanks to my friend Jerry Ireland for including me in this.
This is one of our orchids.  We, Angela Aristizabal-Myeress and I,
have about 8 plants.  Most bloom several times a year.

Beautiful morning at beautiful location.
