    Cool More pics...birds, clouds, cats, bugs!!

    Lots of new pics to share! I did finally get my new lens...still trying to get used to this thing. It is so heavy I am going to have to get a new tripod very soon....almost weighs 3 lbs!!

    So here are some of my first shots with the new lens...they aren't terribly exciting but here ya go:






    This was the only really neat shot but he/she was moving so fast I didn't get the best picture, plus he/she was pretty far away:


    Some pics of the sky and a treetop:






    Back to my tamron lens here are some more bug shots:


    Luv this web:


    This is the weirdest spider...the other side is black and white:


    I found this guy dead in my house....he was huge!


    Look at those eyes!


    And of course some kitty shots:






    Whoa, look at that tongue:


    In these pics she looks like a huge kitty teddy bear:




    Posing for me again...



    Okay thats it everyone...enjoy!

    Spiders freak me out
    Yeah that spider did freak me out ... I thought it was playing dead and poked at it from a distance quite a number of times before moving it. LOL

    Those photos are stunning the cat is just adorable, if you hear a little mew in the night its me coming and stealing your gorgeous cat LOL the spider pics are fascinating but i am rather squeemish when it comes to miniature wildlife you would have found me squeeling in a different room to it LOL The bird pics are fantastic also, birds fascinate me. and I also love the cloud pics, clouds come in so many shapes and sizes and brings back memories of lying on the grass as a child making shapes, animals people monsters out of the cloud shapes, and if I am honest I still do it in those idle moments LOL

    Its a Nikon 80-200mm 2.8 for the bird shots.

    Those photos are stunning the cat is just adorable, if you hear a little mew in the night its me coming and stealing your gorgeous cat LOL the spider pics are fascinating but i am rather squeemish when it comes to miniature wildlife you would have found me squeeling in a different room to it LOL The bird pics are fantastic also, birds fascinate me. and I also love the cloud pics, clouds come in so many shapes and sizes and brings back memories of lying on the grass as a child making shapes, animals people monsters out of the cloud shapes, and if I am honest I still do it in those idle moments LOL
    LOL...do you need a tabby cat Carrie! I had fun taking pics of the clouds even though the mosquitoes wouldn't leave me alone. I was tripping all over myself staring out that lens and walking around trying to take pics of the sky. I like cloud watching too...its very relaxing.
