No poo involved there. He was mad at the lady monkey for a minute.

Now the chimps, that was a different story. A few of them kept a nice little perfect log, at the ready, in their hand, prepared for a poo slinging. My little girls thought it quite gross. They politely asked the chimps to stop and then got aggravated when their request was denied. We moved right along :s_whiteflag

That's a good lens you're shootin' with, Joshua. Care to share what you're using for equipment?


Nice shots. It's not easy to get some of the shots you get.

Thank you. I'm new to this, but I'm reading a lot and really practicing, there are some really great books. I'm having a lot of fun with this. It is helping me see His creations in all sorts of new and wonderful ways, praise God.

Some of those shots were hard to get. Especially because my wife and daughters were not as interested as I was in waiting around for a good shot. They like the photos, but not the waiting. I do a lot of hunting and am quite patient in that way. No animals were harmed during this 'shoot' :wink:. I get a lot of prayer time in while waiting. I find it very relaxing and fulfilling.

I believe all of the photos in this post are from the 55-300. If you can't see the imbedded info in the photos and you want the specific info, I'd be happy to post it.

Still working on gear, but I'm off to a decent start. So far I've not gone for anything too expensive in relation to what's available. At some point I may decide I want a big lens for wildlife photos where I can't get close to the animals.

I started in the lower line of cameras with the Nikon d3200. So far I'm happy with it (haven't had it long), but there are a couple of things I wish it did that it doesn't. Neither is a deal breaker for me, just a few things I'd change if I could.

It came with a 18-55 (AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED II) kit lens.

I got the 55-300 (AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR) and a 35mm prime (AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G). The 35mm prime lens is really impressive. I could change my mind after more learning and practice, but so far I don't see me having a need to go up to one in the 1.4 range over that 1.8, especially for the price difference.

So far I'm just using the extension tubes for practicing macro, but I'm already ready for a macro lens. I think I'm going to go with the 85mm macro (AF-S DX Micro Nikkor 85mm f/3.5G ED VR) due to the better pricing there.

I'm hoping that will do it, but there is a chance I may end up with one more prime in the 85mm lens to get to that 1.8 there too.

Of course it lead to a lot of other gear like a flash, filters, cpu, etc. I'm glad I didn't read a book prior to buying the camera because I might have waited, knowing how I am. I've put this off for a lot of years and am really happy to be at it now.

I really am having a lot of fun and I don't mind sharing any of my information or hardware choices. I'm part of another hobby and I always appreciate when folks are willing to share what they know so I do my best to return the favor anytime I can. Plus, in this hobby of photography, any positive or negative feedback is very helpful for me.
