Default 2nd set with the DA 18-135

Getting some more use out of the new lens, this time golf in the rain and the beach. At the course I found some Wood Storks, a few Ibis, and a sleeping Anhinga. I walked all around it and it just kept sleeping. I also saw an Osprey having dinner. Too bad I missed him catching it.

Do you use a CPL to get the sky's blue to pop in the last two photos? Very vibrant!

That lens really shines in your capable hands! Amazing how close you are able to get to the birds. Great color and sharpness too.

No filters or color processing on the shots.

I believe its a brown pelican

Thanks for all the comments, I am really enjoying the lens, off to Busch gardens with the g-Kids

Definitely a brown pelican, we have them around here, too. I really like the body surfer, 135 is pretty short for surfers around here.
