Lens Test – Flamingo


We’re getting ready for another trip and I bought a new Fuji 90mm f2 lens for the occasion.  I wanted a portrait lens with just a little “reach” so I’ll be able to use it with the snow monkeys in Japan.  This lens has received great reviews so I had to try it.  Living only a mile or so from the San Diego Zoo has its advantages so I went over last night to take a couple of quick photos to play with the lens.    The flamingos are one of the first things you see in the zoo so I used them as my test.

    • I’m hoping they don’t use false eyelashes – they are, after all, celebrities
