Wildlife After The Storm

We had the first of 3 storms get done and leave late last night. Another storm is due tonight and then the 3rd one is due Tuesday. I figured since the storm was over and another on the way this morning would be a good opportunity to catch some wildlife staying out a little latter which means better light. They want to catch up on the food they missed yesterday and extra for the coming storm.

Awesome pics, I can see a few Christmas cards there.

I haven't photographed animals before other than at the zoo and a couple of my work colleagues hehehe.

What lens were you using?

I plan on doing some wild animals in Kenya this coming year and will have my 300mm f/2.8 and 80-200mm f/2.8 (which I might add is making excellent time from the eBayseller in Japan who posted it on a Saturday) with me.

I expect to have to use the 2x teleconverter as well.

Any other lens suggestions?

I have a Tamron SP 200-500 f/5.6 but I doubt I will take that as it is a very large lens.

Hi Crash, My BIGMA is on my K10D 90 to 95 % of the time and it is attached to my Bigma all the time. It is slow with bad light but over all I am real happy with it.
