    Pretty thin month for me - but it is still winter here:

    In April I spent some time on weekends trying my new lens, a 75-300mm f4.8-6.7 II (which replaces my compact ultrazoom for wildlife photography). In addition to that I also went to some local events. All photos are taken using my trusty E-M5.

    April was a great month for me - I usually have a short list of about 10-12, this month it was more like 40. I don't know if these are the 5 best of the month, but there was something about each of them (quality of light, color, mood) that prevented me from cutting them from my list.
