The Question:
from Kelly S. Andrews Love your photography!!!!!

Wow! I am blown away by all of your great images. Your favorite subjects are the same as mine - birds, butterflies, dragonflies, flowers, wildlife.... I love all of your bird close-ups. I have become an avid birder in the past year and I would love to get some of the shots you have. It seems that you have lots of feeders and a pond in your yard to attract all of your friends. :-) It is harder for me because I live in a condo, but I do hang out at the local ponds and wildlife spots.

Until now I have only had a 80-200mm lens so my birds just aren't big enough in the frame. I just got a 80-300mm lens and I am going to get a 2x converter for it as well. What focal length lens do you use for your bird, butterlies and dragonflies? I have to say I was surprised that you shoot all digital - the quality of the images are great!

Keep up the good work!

Thank you so much for your wonderful note. I just love the birds so much. Maybe you could hang a small feeder up at your condo. If you put sunflower hearts in the feeder it won't make a mess. I bet you would have all kinds of visitors.
I almost always use my Tamron 70-300mm lens for my bird, butterfly and dragonfly shots.
I just got a new macro lens so I can't wait to get some extreme closeups.
Thank you so much again for visiting and for your wonderful comments. Stop by often.
