April 27 Birding at World's End in Hingham, MA

Bird Photography in Hingham, MA:

Today was my first day using a super telefoto lens.  Canon was kind enough to ship out an 800mm lens for me to try.  I never, at any time, had any inclination to own a lens longer than my arm, but wanted to experience this once, while I am young enough to carry it.  

The Canon 800mm weighed about 15 pounds, so I chose an area of conservation land close to where I live, and one that I am familiar with, World's End in Hingham, Massachusetts.

I found a few live creatures to try my hand, and arms and shoulders, at this large lens.
