I'm renting a few long lenses to see if I like them. If I do find one I like, then I may buy one, or rent the favorite to take on our Alaska cruise this summer. The first one that I'm trying out is a Tamron 150-600. I was out in our backyard checking it out last Sunday, and as luck would have it, a pair of Roadrunners came out of their forested hiding places. The female in the foreground was in our backyard, and the male was on the other side of the fence on our neighbor's driveway. It's not the greatest photo, but I was just so thrilled to get them both in the same shot, that I decided to share. I'm shooting at them from probably about 300 feet away. I have cropped the shot just a bit.

Have a wonderful and fine day today my friends!
