Sometimes the French word is just better. (I can’t pronounce it, but I still like it.) I got a new lens for Christmas — the Nikon 55-200mm VR AF-S f/4-5.6G. This allows me to spy on my favorite animal from inside the house. I will readily admit that I baited these squirrels with bread and apples in an attempt to lure them out into the open (spoiler: it worked). I’m pretty impressed with the quality of these photos since they were taken from the comfort of my kitchen, through two layers of glass and a screen. I’m looking forward to seeing what it can do outside on a warmer day! Brrrrr!

    Love it! I had a similar lens on my old Canon. It was so much fun to spy on the birds. The last shot is priceless, like he’s saying, I know you are there paparazzi, but I don’t care, here’s my best side while I eat! Hahaha.

      Thanks Lisa! We’re hoping to put up some bird feeders just outside the front windows. I’m really looking forward to capturing some pretty birds this winter (from inside, naturally!).
