I made friends! And check it out- these are NOT Lensbaby shots. Oh wow... what's happening? Well, I got my hands on a Tamron 16-300 mm lens right before my trip. A dilemna I have had right before a couple of my trips- Peru/Ecuador and Yellowstone - am I going to want a straight/long lens for wildlife? I have to say I am glad I had it on this trip or I never would have gotten the kangaroos, emus, and koalas that I captured. They were either far away or moving to fast for me to capture with manual focus. Hans actually shot these while I was horse whispering.
