A New Lens!

For the past few months, I've been intent on saving and purchasing a 105mm macro lens, but with the cool weather and lack of wildlife photo ops, I decided I would be better off ordering a new zoom lens!  I still plan on adding the 105mm to my gear collection sometime this year, but I'm so happy with my choice to get the zoom lens.  I ended up saving a few hundred dollars, and I can now take photos like the one above without disturbing the subject!  Yay!

My dream zoom lens is the

70-200 f2.8

, but I'm not even close to having something like that in my budget this year.  I ended up going with the

70-300 f4.8-5.6

which was a lot more affordable.  I'm so happy with it so far!

Unless the weather is bad, I'm planning on taking it to the zoo sometime this weekend and I'm beyond excited about it :)

Equipment Used:

Nikon D3100

Nikon 70-300 f4.5-5.6
