  4. These ducklings are adorable! I like how the light colors in the water match the light coloring in the ducklings.

    • I noticed that too! But have no idea where the yellow in the water came from, I didn’t see it when I took the picture. πŸ™‚ Hugs Wendy

    • Thanks Lyle! I takes a bit of getting used to, but so far I’m pretty pleased with it. πŸ™‚

      • That’s good. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed getting new lenses but I’m a bit of a gear junkie.

        • I used to have an EF 70-200mm f/4 L USM lens, which is probably a better lens but I never used it so sold it to a friend.. I might be only one who have changed to the 70-300mm instead of the other way around πŸ˜‰ But I like that it’s black, smaller, lighter!

          • You have find what works for you. The extra reach is nice and the true test of a lens is whether you use it.

  11. Wonderful shot. I haven’t yet seen any ducklings this spring ( so I am a little jealous). Glad to see you are enjoying the new lens. My telephoto zoom got a good workout this winter photographing birds.

    • Thanks Mike! I’ve been watching your frog, dragonfly and other pictures with envy πŸ˜‰ These little ducklings are the first “spring animals” I’ve seen here. Hopefully more soon!
