I Love You THIS Much by mydigitalmind I Love You THIS Much by mydigitalmind
I took a small photo break today and decided to use my T1i instead of the 5D to get the extra crop factor. It's making me miss a cropped sensor... This is one of the funner shots taken while he was stretching. I find it weird that his underside is so blurred compared to even his wings. I'm pretty sure this is a juvenile male even though there is no actual red yet.

It's a f4.5-5.6 - as far as I know, for this lens, there is no faster speed.
