New critters to go with our new lens…

Kyle here. Heather has been busy with law school the past week but I was able to test out our new lens for a little bit this weekend. It is our first 500 mm lens and I absolutely love it. It worked really well for getting better pictures of some of the smaller birds. I got several interesting shots of some new critters we  hadn’t seen before. I’ve posted some of our favorites below:
