I used the telephoto lens for this one. This bird was actually quite a distance away.
I'm still trying to figure out how to focus properly when I use manual settings. Once again, taken from a distance using the telephoto lens.
Macro shot. Until I get a macro lens there's no way I'm going to take any really good shots. Bugs and birds are notoriously busy critters who rarely hold still. This bumblebee was extremely uncooperative. And don't get me started about the huge butterfly that would freak out and fly away every time I got anywhere close to being able to take a good photo.
