A few humble common park critters, shot with the humble common 40-150 4-5.6 kit lens. I see a 75-300 in my future...

Well go figure ... I took my (new to me) Oly 12-100mm Pro for the first time ... to work and in the evening a very young little deer showed up in the back garden of the workplace house:

Took the dooogie out for a walk and while out by the basins I wanted to sit down and see what I can "see" ... though at the moment I am limited to 100mm max. But I was still quite surprised:

A little Wren looking for nom noms in the grass.

I did notice a Blue Tit but it was quite far away so it is quite a heavy crop and it was taking off.

This was the first time I saw a Water Vole in the water, noticed the water rippling in an asymmetric pattern with the corner of my eye and as I was turning slowly this little furball was just swimming adorably. I do hope I can get more chances when I get the Oly 100-400.

My hopes of focus for the next few months: Kingfishers ... there are quite a few in the area and I can't wait to use Pro Capture Low and High with the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 100-400mm f 5-6.3 IS to capture these majestic and beautiful birds. I will wear a camo net to break my visual pattern to get close enough and to observe natural behaviour when I can identify a nest and a hunting grounds.
I still have about a month to search and prepare and observe.

The Culvert Kits were out this afternoon. Didn't have a long lens so cropped quite a bit. (Jason better get out there with your 300/4)
