    I received a new long lens this week. Focus is great - and I love the 400mm. Here are some of my first shots.

    400 is a bit long for garden shots, but you made them work.

    Nice garden, yours?

    Thanks Dave - yes my garden. You are right I guess I could just stand further back this time. Also no wind helped a lot.

    Thanks Nick and Yves. Not that much into them myself Nick (except having them in the garden). They are my go to subject when its not right for landscapes. I was fiddling with the new lens in these ones and hoping for somes birds - but the long white part scared them all away.
