Early the following day, I gave the Tamron a field test. The place was Eaton Canyon in Pasadena - one of my favorite birding haunts. As in any new equipment, it took some getting used to before I was able to truly appreciate the 150-600 lens.
Here are a few sample photos:
|Northern Mockingbird - one of the early shots, still in learning mode|
|Western Scrub Jay - getting better|
|Golden-crowned Sparrow - should've gotten more depth of field|
|American Bushtit - was able to nail this hyperactive tiny skulker|
|Swainson's Hawk - also tried some BIF but the subject was just too high up|
Aside from birds, I also photographed a ground squirrel
|maybe I should shift to mammal photography|
|a Poppy is also a flower (to borrow from a film title)|
Uuuy, another Tamron user!
