Across the Pond

I am trying a new lens, the Pentax 55 – 300 mm WR.  I took some earlier pictures of an egret but it was early in the morning and the lighting wasn’t good so the pictures weren’t as good as these of the Heron.  As a result of seeing the results obtained with this lens in less light, I started thinking about returning the lens.  I haven’t decided that the extra 100 mm in focal length is worth the extra weight and size, but these Heron pictures have me smiling more.
