My Christmas Surprise

I have the best husband in the world!!!I have literally drooled and dropped hint after hint for the past 2 years that it would be my dream to own the Panasonic  m100-400mm Leica lens for my birding and wildlife photography. Using a micro four thirds camera this provides me up to 800 mm in length when compared to a 35mm or dSLR  .  I literally sat in stunned silence when Guy told me to order it, that he really wanted me to have it.It arrived Friday and I took it out for a quick test drive right away.  Now the thing about this lens is it needs light, the more the better and of course it was cloudy and overcast, and it has a learning curve so I was struggling a bit but if this is bad light, can't wait to see what good light will be.  And who gets to shoot a bald eagle on their first test run of a new pro lens??

Happy 2018!!!!!
