I’m not good with names…of anything (people, plants, birds, etc.). I liked the look of this plant, especially with the dusting of snow on it.
This was taken with my new Canon ef-s 55-250mm f4/5.6 lens. It’s not a high quality L lens but is instead considered an entry level/amateur lens. At this time I can’t afford an L quality lens but I really wanted a lens with a longer zoom than my current lens (ef-s 17-85mm). I also wanted an affordable, light, and compact lens that would be easy to take with me on vacation. Maybe in the future I’ll be able to afford an L lens but for now I think this will do just fine.
Of course I could have taken this shot with my 17-85mm lens but I need to practice with the new lens and hopefully will come across some situations that benefit from the extended zoom. I think I will find plenty of opportunities when I go on vacation to Florida at the end of the month.
