I'd come back from a walk after taking a few snaps of some cardinals and noticed this fella having breakfast with one of them. Manged to Follow him around a bit and get a few nice pics.

Borrowed a friend's while trying to decide if I want the Oly 75-300, Pany 100-300ii, or PL100-400 (or wait for the Oly 150-400). Probably going to rent another version of this lens for the last weekend of March to potentially buy that copy.

Both of these are cropped pretty tightly. First was shot across a field. Second was shot from near the trunk of the tree; maybe 30-40 feet tall.

Dont forget tthat Oly is bringing out an 100-400 non pro as well.
It is a shame the Oly pro starts at 150 as that makes it hard for upclose shots of the smaller birds, I am hopeing the Oly 100-400 is as good as the Panasonic 100-400

Right! That's actually what I was referring to, my mistake. I can barely (as in "do I really want to drop the $$$$") afford the PL100-400 so the Oly super duper pro zoom will be out of budget for sure. Waiting to see if the Oly nonpro out-competes the PL or makes it seem better.

I’ve tried both of these lenses and I like the Panasonic better, if only for the additional speed it brings, especially at 300mm. The dual IS with the G9 was a contributing factor as well.

Got some snaps of these guys enjoying a picnic of assorted grubs and worms.

Cropped to 1/4 the original size and added some saturation, no other edits. Pretty happy with the result for a budget camera and lens. :)

Miscellaneous shots. This lens is on my G9 by default. I use it more than my other 2 lenses.

More diverse shots. I actually like using it on the shorter focal distance for things. Can't wait for butterfly season.

Poison larkspur (Delphinium trollifolium) raceme at 300 mm since a thicket of invasive brambles (Rubus armeniacus) was in the way.

I have a bit of a love hate relationship with this lens but i got some decent photos with it today. Fortunately Herons stay still long enough that you don't need to crank up the iso too much.
