Bunny

When I bought my camera I made a point of getting a longer lens for it. An 18-55mm lens came with the camera. For most things that lens serves very well. I bought a 75-300mm lens so I could get closer to subjects like animals and birds that will run away if you get too close to them physically with a shorter lens on the camera. This lens isn't ideal but it was within my budget and occasionally it does serve its purpose.

It did that today when a bunny came along to get the fallen seeds from the bird feeder on the crab apple tree out front. I quickly got my camera changed to the longer lens and took the following four pictures. I have to work hard to keep the camera steady with the lens fully extended and I think I'm getting the hang of it.
