I would qualify this May snow storm to be crummy weather. Mid May and we are getting heavy wet snow piling up over green grass I have already mowed a couple times.

This image was caught from my car. I guess you could call it poaching. I was just waiting for some activity and was rewarded. Wasn't dressed right to be out in this crummy storm.

Thanks for all the great comments and of course votes too!

This lens weighs nearly 4kg! WOW, and I complain about 1.5kg for my setup!


Hi Margaret, I don't handhold this lens. I have a full gimbal set up and a very sturdy tripod. But I do throw that set up over my shoulder and take short hikes with it.

What a delicate image Dennis. I really love it and I'm sure it would work also in B/W.

ETA: 600mm Canon should be a real monster!

I always feel sorry for the wildlife in a snowstorm. Nice image. I particularly like the little bits of snow kicked up by her feet.
