When the Red Red Robin Comes Bob-Bob-Bobbin’ Along… Studying the Wildlife in My Backyard through My New Telephoto Zoom Lens

I recently purchased a Canon 100-400mm telephoto zoom lens for all my wildlife/nature finds plus my disc golf photography… I had a fun day today. πŸ™‚

Thank you for taking the time to view and visit my blog!

As always, please feel free to leave any and all feedback.

PEACE, LOVE until my next bloggy-blog post, dear fellow blog-readin’ friends. πŸ™‚

  1. That looks like fun. I’m researching telephoto lenses now. Spring is here. The rain can’t last forever, so it’s time to start thinking about photo fun. Cheers. Tom

  2. I like the pictures of birds in flight especially. All of them are well done. You must have a very steady hand — or do you use a tripod? I need to get one for my camera. Due to medication I take, my hands are shaky and this is only magnified if I use any kind of zoom.

    • I have really shaky hands too… Especially with a heavy lens. I handheld my camera but kind of rested it on my shoulder to hold it more steady… And adjusted my grip so that I could balance the lens. Most of mine turned out blurry… Except these. Thank you for the feedback!

    • A new camera or a lens… that is a tough call! What camera do you use now? A new lens sure does feel like you’ve got a new camera… expands the horizons a bit. Thank you so much for commenting and best of luck to you in search for a new camera or new lens. πŸ™‚

    • Thank you! The squirrel was probably my favorite find… saw the branches in a tree move so I thought it was a bird… however, my lens discovered this squirrel eating instead! It’s more difficult than I thought it would be to capture birds… they are so quick! Thank you so much for your feedback and continuous support. I really appreciate it! πŸ™‚

  3. Love, love, love these photos. We have Great Blue Herons, Ibiss, Egrets, Sandhill Cranes, ducks, Swans, etc. in our “lake” (retention pond). I love to watch them. Better yet, I’d love to take beautiful photos of them as you do. Great work!

  4. Oh nice set of pictures, Polly! This is your new 400mm zoom at work. I was an ardent birder for years and I also like nature and wildlife generally – and I actually know some of these – American Robin, and is that a Blue Jay and a Cardinal? And the Grey Squirrel, which I like, but which has become a pest after being introduced into the UK, decimating the populations of our native Red Squirrel. Good photos! Adrian
