Duck, duck, deer!

Just recently I received my new camera, the Canon 5D mark II. Itching for a subject to photograph, I headed down the road to the place where I can always find ducks, even in the dead of winter. Sure enough, there were plenty of Mallards to photograph, and a couple of the shots turned out really nicely!

Taking photos of these ducks really made me wish I had a longer telephoto lens, as 300mm just doesn’t seem to cut it with my camera. At one point, a couple of ducks (male and female) swam much closer and I snapped another great shot. Wish I had more like this!

The owner of the property told me that after the sun sets, there are quite a few deer that come around. Thinking this would be a great chance to test out the light sensitivity of my camera, I came back just after dusk and sure enough, there were a few deer roaming around. Here is one of the better shots from that evening:

Can’t wait to get some more use out of my camera, I’ll have tons of photos to post just after Christmas I’m sure. As of Saturday I have finished my 3rd semester at Georgian, so I have much more free time now and you should see more updates from  me here 🙂
