I am sure you love your wife! :-)

I like first and third picture. Firs is actually very interesting one but maybe some 'cropping' should be done.

Second is typical misfocused one; probably all AF points were ON.

I think the last picture is the most interesting...looks like a river of rocks.

If the squirrel had been focused properly that would've made it a lot better...looks like the rock was focused on instead.

Yes the chipmunk was a very fast shot and I missed it,but it shows me what this lens will do if I get any good with it.



Thanks for the nice words on the 3rd pic.
