Another day when I don’t have time to do a “real” post, so instead I’m just tossing up a picture so you know I didn’t forget about you. It’s an iguana! From the zoo across the street! From the much-maligned Tamron 28-300 VC lens! This is a (rare) case where I’m not sure I could have gotten this shot without it, since this was a 1/40s handheld exposure. The image stabilization actually worked out for me this time, sweet.
I was HOPING I’d have a chance today to talk about the two newest toys I ordered for my camera earlier this week, but no. They’re both for macro stuff, so hopefully not only will you get a chance to read about them someday, you’ll also get to see the results of them somewhat soon. We’ll see. Hopefully tomorrow I’ll be able to talk about them? At least one of them should be getting here tomorrow, so that’ll be cool. Okay, that’s all the time I’ve got for today..
Notes: Canon EOS Rebel XT, Tamron 28-300mm VC lens. 1/40s, f/6.3, ISO 200. Focal length: 300mm.

Eeeeeguana. Saw this little guy on my honeymoon. I can’t remember how much of the itinerary I’ve already gone over, so here’s a quick summary: first we took a weeklong cruise out of Puerto Rico, we stopped in Aruba, Curacao, St. Martin, and St. Thomas. Then, we got off the boat in St. Thomas (and missed the last night as the boat returned to Puerto Rico), and stayed there for 4 more nights. We stayed right near Coral World and Coki Beach, both of which are totally worth checking out if you’re in the area. Great snorkeling, all that. And Iguanas. Iguanas are easy to take pictures of, they don’t move much. And that’s all I’ve got to say today.
