Even though there wasn't much of any light to work with,I enjoy using the new lens so much I just take it out and shoot it even in poor conditions.

I couldn't get close to anything but plants and Finches!

The images are all from the Canon 30D,70-200 F2.8L IS @AV 2.8 Various Time Values. Extremely small amount of PP.

Buds from the Crabapple trees I planted last weekend

Iowa's state bird-too far away!

Finally,this is one of the reasons I love this lens-not much for comp,but this is a 100% center crop!! A little grainy of course,but I was suprised how it looked!

Those look great! I'm really glad you like the 70-200mm! Especially the f2.8 is where it becomes very handy in low light!

Really liked the 4th one. Very nice! Sharp! \:\)

Gotta love them finches. Even though the first one was "too far away", I really like it as an environmental shot. Although close up shots are nice, there are times I prefer to see the bird in it's surroundings, like this time.

    • Wetting a line for the 1st time today. Gonna hit it hard this weekend.
    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
