If you're my friend at Facebook or follow me at Twitter, you may have caught my announcement that I purchased some serious Canon "glass". That's photographers' speak for a new lens. I came into photography as a nature lover, and I continue to be a nature photographer despite the realization that the hobby can also lead to some serious money shooting things other than nature. One of my little side projects has been to sell images at Istockphoto.com, mostly of food and our travels to Maine, as a little side business.
This venture helped finance a new nature tool, the Canon 100-400 lens. If you're a Canon shooter and like nature, you know this lens. If you don't care about techno gear, just know that this new tool will help me get even closer, crisp shots of wildlife as Megan, Weston and I go on our weekend adventures. I put it to good use this weekend shooting out our windows at dark-eyed juncos and gray squirrels.
