Hadn't taken this lens out for a walk in quite a while, so decided to give it some exercise. Still can't believe this lens is the price it is for the IQ it conveys.....cheers...Don.

2 Same duck from behind again. Check out the symmetry of the wing pattern on the back. What a colour scheme these birds have...

5 Two love birds. Don't know this species. ..I think this was taken with the Tamron 24-135.

Hi kman,

Great stuff!!!

I really envy the first two as I've never seen a wood duck in the wild. . .

Me want wood duck shots (pout). . .

Wow, those two shots of the wood duck are great! And, if I am reading your exif correctly, that was at maximum zoom and maximum aperture too. I agree, I have been very happy with my copy of that lens. I don't get mine out too often either, I guess because I always think I will want more of something (zoom, macro, larger aperture). Maybe I need to slap mine on and take it for a walk too.

Thanks Scott, fisheye. Scott, these wood ducks here are pretty tame. In fact, it's about the only place I've seen them locally. They're well fed by the lots of people, so are pretty tame....cheers....Don
