Oh deer, foxy lady

I have the best husband in the world. For two days last week, we fought about whether I should buy a new lens for my camera or not. He was insisting that we buy the lens, I was thinking it wasn't the right time (visions of dollar signs dancing in my head). He won the battle, and we headed into Halifax on Saturday to purchase a new lens. 

How many husbands encourage their wives to spend money on a hobby? My new baby is a Sigma OS 150-500mm. And....nature has been kind to me in the past few days, and has given me opportunity to try out the lens! 

It's going to be a great spring and summer with my new toy thanks to my husband. (did I mention that he makes all the lunches and most of the dinners too?)

Those are some amazing photos...especially the one with the deer jumping. I would love a good lens like that...maybe someday. PS Your husband sounds like a wonderful guy; I have one, too, even though he doesn't cook, he is endlessly supportive of my hobbies. Aren't we lucky!
