Eagles & Owls, Oh My!

Winter is a great time for photographing birds, and coincidentally, it also is a great time to rent a telephoto lens to take photos of those birds! We have a number of telephoto lenses ranging from the run of the mill Canon/Nikon 70-200mm f2.8 IS/VR to the super-telephoto class 500mm f4 lenses.  A longer lens allows you to "get closer" to an animal without disturbing it and disrupting its behaviour and will isolate the animal from the background so it's clearly visible in the frame.

* Special weekend rates: gear picked up on a Friday between 1pm ~ 5pm and returned the following Monday between 8:30am ~ 12pm are charged just a one day rate.
