Birds

I posted these on the bird thread with the lens information, but thought I'd put them up here too, to plug the lens, which I think is very good. All shot on the E-M5, manually metered and exposed with raw files processed in Lightroom 4.4 and Photoshop.

Apples, not photo gear. Olympus E P2. Nice sharpness and bokeh.

Just a bunny -- and a turtle

I have to say, I just love using this lens on my E-M5.

I'd never seen one of these at the Rio Grande Nature Center before, although they are native to the area. This one was huge!

Hats off to Lawrence A for inspiring me to make this my 300mm. I've had the Canon L and Nikon ED, but for less than 1/2 the price, this puppy delivers!
