Peter,
I have a 75-200mm zoom lens from my SLR film days. This works out to a 112-300mm on my digital camera.

did you need to shoot at the 200mm setting or were you close enough to to go with a smaller focal length?

Hey Tim, sure that last one isn't Nessie? Nice wildlife shots!

Look out for #1, but don't step in #2!

Very nice shots indeed, Tim. Before reading this was a frog, I thought you had caught to top of the head of a crocodile... Quite stupid but we don't have a lot of these beasts here.

Thanks everyone,

Frederic and Andy,
I had a heck of time getting that shot. There were little ones but I wanted a bigger one. Finally one came up and click.
Your right, it kind of looks like a croc. Know this, there is no Steve Irwin here to go wrestle the beast.
To tell you the truth I was thinking frog legs for dinner might be more appropiate.

The last guy coming out of the water, didn't look too friendly.

Peter,
I shot at 200mm and I was about 15 to 20 feet away before she decided that was close enough. Another interesting thing was my wife was standing about 5 feet behind me with our 2 Siberian Huskies! I guess everyone was in awe of each other.

Sure looks like you made a new friend and a willing model for future images.

I guess the doe that I took the picture of the other day has put the word out. Now they want their kids in on the action!



I just took these this morning.

Nice photo Gerry,

Here is one of a moth I seen today. Not sure what kind it is, but it's purty!
