About Me

We are known as PaWingers or just The Wingers by our Geocaching friends. When we found our first cache we had to come up with a name to log the find. We came up with this name simply because of residing in Pa. and because one of our many passions is cruising this beautiful country on our Honda Goldwing. Aside from geocaching we are passionate about most anything outdoors including hiking, kayaking, snowmobiling and biking. We are blessed beyond words with a wonderful son and daughter in law. We're also blessed with some terriffic family and friends. We consider ourselves very fortunate due to the fact that after being married over 40 years we still enjoy these things together.

Testing the 100-400mm f/4-5.6 L

We took a little ride tonight with the intention of testing a new lens at the various focal lengths.  We basically were looking for any subject that would be a good test to check sharpness through the range of the zoom.  The local elk seemed to be eager to be the subjects of our tests.  As I set up to do my testing I spotted old blue eyes.  I wish this cow was just related to Frank Sinatra but sadly is blind in one eye.  We were happy to see that she came through the winter and appears to be strong and in good health.  Not only is she blind but the eye is bulging quite noticeably.

I've never thought about calling an elk "smug"  but this young cow is definitely "smug".

It looks like the 100-400mm is working well for you and I hope it gives you good service.
