I got this lens to mostly shoot football, but the weather is awesome right now, so I thought I would head out to see what I could find to shoot. No luck finding birds, aside from these Ducks.

They seemed to be under attack from what looks like a water rat. I thought it was maybe a gopher, but it was too small

Anyway, I do like the way the images turn out with this lens....I guess it is a keeper.

All C&C welcome!

Pretty cool shots! Looks like a small beaver judging by the tail but I am by no means an animal expert.

#1 is a great shot. I'm 99% sure that's a Musk Rat.

Yup. Muskrat. They're vegetarians mostly. I've seen them feeding on carcasses but I've never heard of one predating a live anything.

the 300 f4 seems like a pretty nice lens. I have considered getting one.
