Yesterday I gave my 70 - 300VR a good work out. If you don't have this lens, go out and get one. I was so happy with the results. I spent the day taking pictures of birds in my yard then in the afternoon went to a close by pond where there were some Canandian Geese - a very angry daddy one at that. Although all his anger was directed at the other birds as he was protecting his young.

Yvette,
Wonderful shots! Especially of the Dad. I learned something else - that CG have teeth on their tongue. Good idea to keep away from that mouth!

Thank you. I am glad you enjoyed them. I also did not know that they had teeth on their tongues. Later I will post a series that I took of two of them fighting. It was not a pretty sight and they both came away very sore.

Excellent. Those babies are really cute and I like the Dad shots as well.
Thanks Torben. The babies were very cute. We were feeding them bread and the babies were coming right up to us.....much to the dad's dismay. He kept calling them back. They were so close I had to back up in order to get the shot.

Thanks Dianne. The Dad spent the entire time chasing everyone away. They are very pretty birds though.

Thank you JenW. I am glad you enjoyed them. I had fun taking the shots. I was just waiting for one of them to start chasing me. I told my husband that I would have to hit him over the head with my lens. Hee Hee.

Those baby shots top the cute scale
Great shots
Keep up the great work
Thanks Gale. I only started taking pictures in December and I have really been working hard at trying to get better shots. I was very happy with what I took yesterday.
