Steven, wow this is amazing. I see that you use Canon ...what kind of lens did you use to take these incredible chick shots? #2716126

Steven Gunnerson May 02, 2006

Thank you everyone for your great comments!

Jennifer - Well it takes a lot of patience and I try to appear as non threatening as possible. I move very slowly and don't stare at either the parents or the goslings. Or maybe it's because I'm a vegatarian :o)

Margot - I use the newer Canon 70-300mm USM IS lens. I've read that it has "L" series quality glass! Also, I used a 12mm extension tube to give me more focal length. #2716361

Margot Petrowski May 02, 2006

Thanks Steven!!! Keep those incredible shots coming!!! #2716433

Melissa G. Meiselman May 02, 2006
