I've been putting my new lens through the paces this weekend and I like it. I like the better range and magnification and closer focus. I'll post more tonight.

Here is my old freind Hobbs. The yearling bull showed up after I was visiting with hobbs for a half hour. He came from and left in a different direction so they were not together, but they are in the same area. I wonder if he's Hobbs' son. He looks like he might be growing a similar beard, which is long and skinny, without much of a bell.

Not to be redundant, but that first shot is simply amazing. Actually getting to witness something like that is certainly very special. Thanks for bringing the rest of us along with you.
