Holy cats do I ever have a nice camera. Jebra got it for me for my birthday (and a wee bit early at that), so I've had it for, um, around three months. And until today I never swapped to the big lens (55 to 250).

The rain's really coming down and the geese are back in our parking lot. My co-worker called me outside to see them, and then amused us both by observing the gaggle congregated in front of one of our no standing/stopping/parking signs. I popped back inside to grab my camera, but they'd moved on by the time I came back. The shots I got weren't much different than the ones I took the other day, so I returned inside. Then I thought to try out the other lens. And, oh my, I'm impressed with what it can do. It has built-in stabilization, which means today's tripod-less distance shots are crisp and clear. Awesome!

The others were pretty cute. I'm looking forward to seeing the new ones :)

Thanks, Sweetie! Altogether I posted four more pages of pictures last night. I think I must be one of the world's slowest scrapbookers as creating those four pages took me all night. (Although it's also true that I half-watched three full episodes of I Spy while I made them.)

Also, did you know geese eat dandelions? I didn't until I noticed both the adults and the babies munching on both the white seed heads as well as the still yellow flowers.
