I got me a New (to me) lens!

Ever go out and realize that you just a bit more ‘reach’ to get up close to a Blue Jay or Cardinal?  Especially since these guys don’t stay still for very long.  Or maybe get in a bit tighter to the woodpecker that visits your yard?  How about when your kids are up on stage at school?

Well, that’s me.  My Nikon 55-200 just didn’t cut it for these instances and it was frustrating.

I bit the bullet a few weeks ago and got an older (circa 2002, I think) Tamron 70-300mm zoom and macro.  I’m not sure what the macro will do for me right now but the additional zoom it huge!

I took a few test shots in lousy lighting to see the differences and will share some better ones soon.
