    Against my better judgement, I decided to post this.
    I don't think it's all that great. I need more lens for this type of photography.
    A 40-150mm lens just isn't cutting the mustard for things like this. I'm having to get too close, and sometimes I just can't. Even when I do, one wrong move and poof, you're looking at backs and butts. I have missed so many shots for lack of what I need for this.
    Yes I was able to get in kind of close for this but that is far from always the case.
    I only have two lenses. Trying to make do with what I have.
    But I'm getting ready to solve that problem once and for all, now that I have confidence that I can put it to good use and justify the money.
    So anyway.
    Hope you guys are well.

    It might not be what you envisioned but it is still an awesome shot! I really like this one! What lens are you thinking about getting next?

    Thank y'all. I'm looking hard at M.Zuiko 150-400 f4.5
    7500.00. I may have to settle for the 100-400 f5-6.3 It's 1500.00
    But I will be getting something. Pretty soon.

    Edit; I'm making do. With what I have.
    I complain and stuff, but, it could be worse.
    I thank God for everything in my life. Even the bad days.
    A man got to have something to believe in.

    Remember, birds have incredible eyesight. From a great distance, they are able to read the markings on your lens, determine your maximum focal length, and move just out of reach.

    Good shot.

    If you want something that has a little more reach, but isn't quite as expensive as what you listed, you should look at the Panasonic 100-300 f4-5.6. I have been using that lens with my EM5 Mark ii for a while and I have been happy the results. I chose that over the equivalent Olympus because it's weather sealed. It may not be the best lens, but it's good for what I do.
