    I received my new Canon 100mm f2.8 Macro yesterday afternoon and this is the first chance I've gotten to play with it. Still on the learning curve, but I can tell I'm gonna like this new lens. Please C&C and give any advise you might have.

    What's an "Aggie"?
    And what birds are supposed to eat these seeds?
    For it is bird seeds we see here, isn't it?
    You happen to have any photos of the birds at dinner time (not taken with your new toy, of course, but with another lens you have)? ;)

    Aggie

    The term pertains to students or teams at some historic land grant, mechanical & agricultural schools.​

    Texas A&M Aggies. I have 3 degrees from that fine institution and my son is a senior there now. It is located in College Station, Texas.

    Most of those are sunflower seeds and oh yeah, the birds really go for them, especially Cardinals. I'll check and see if I have any shots of them.

    I know the image is a little soft, but I was hand holding and hadn't changed my f-stop. Shot the darn thing at 1/13 of a second. I think its pretty sharp for hand held at that speed. Really got lucky it wasn't blurred. When you have luck, you can don't have to have brains. I'm going out again this morning with a tripod and a little more brainpower. Hope I have some better images to put up.

    I think the 'noise' might be the dirty seeds?
