My lovely husband has bought me a new lens! It is the Canon 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6l IS II and I am looking forward to using it. I have seen images from people using the lens and the quality is superb, I just hope I can do the same. It will give me extra reach and it is not too much heavier than my 300mm lens. I bought it from Castle Cameras in Bournemouth, they were doing a 10% off promotion for just this week so we took advantage of that.
I couldn’t wait to try it out but I had to go out in the afternoon so we stopped at Blandford and had a half an hour to walk along the Stour meadows to give it a try. As always there was a few birds about. There were several Kingfishers dashing about but I didn’t have time or wasn’t quick enough to catch them and unfortuanately they didn’t perch on a tree branch for me!
