Pictures with Tamron 150-600mm – part 2
I like to take pictures of monkeys because they show a lot of personality. Many gestures and expressions are the same as the humans. The picture above is one of them. The Orangutan mom and her baby is having a moment, bonding time with each other. It looks so effortless and peaceful. This picture is taken indoors and through a thick window, still the Canon 70D and Tamron 150-600mm lens manage to capture the moment. This picture is taken handheld.
Orangutan male is looking different from the female. It is often bigger and the face looks different as well. This picture above was taken from about 20 meters away. With the Tamron zoom lens you will be able to come pretty close and you will get more natural pictures since you do not have to disturb the animal when you stand further away. This picture is taken handheld.

Today’s picture is of a tiger. It was taken handheld and I was standing about 30 meters away from the tiger. The camera that was used was a Canon 70D and the Tamron 150-600mm lens.
Wolf taken with Tamron 150-600mm
Today’s picture is of a wolf. It is taken with Canon 70D and Tamron 150-600mm. The wolf was kind of far away from me when I took this shot. Although with the Tamron 150-600mm the distance to a object is never to far away because of the ultra zoom lens. It allows you to come very close to the animals without disturbing them.
Focus on Brown Bears
Today’s post will be about brown bears. It is a lovely big animal. These pictures was taken when I visited a zoo in the middle of Sweden. All pictures are taken with Canon 70D and Tamron 150-600 mm.
Birds taken with the Tamron 150-600mm lens
I went to Sri Lanka to test my Tamron 150-600mm lens in the wild. In every corner you will find some animal just waiting for its photo opportunity. Like the bird seen above, it was very calm and did not mind getting photographed. The bird is a green bee-eater.
The pictures above are showing a purple Heron, cattle Egrets, Little Cormorant, Grey Heron, Intermediate Egret and a purple Heron flying.
A little purple swamphen is in the picture above. I was lucky to get a picture of it before it ran away. This was from the Bundala national park, a bird sanctuary.
A fight between 2 males that both wants to have the little island behind them with one female. The birds are called White-breasted Waterhen.
Most of the pictures are not from a national park. These birds can be found in the wild anywhere in Sri Lanka.
Monkeys and elephants – Bundala national park
This month I went abroad. I have visited Sri Lanka in Asia. A great opportunity to see wild animals. All pictures have been taken with the Tamron 150-600mm lens on a Canon 60D. The pictures are taken in Bundala national park.
Above are some pictures of grey langurs. They come in big groups and dont mind if you stop by for a visit. I was pretty close when I saw the monkeys and they were very busy eating leaves.
I will upload some more pictures of birds in another segment. Do not forget to follow this site to keep yourself updated with more news.
Wild animals – using Tamron 150-600 mm
I have been away for awhile and the reason for that is because I went to Sri Lanka to take some nice pictures of wild animals. I went to Yala National Park to see if I could get a glimpse of some leopards. I was lucky to see two. They were up in a tree and there were leaves and branches covering the leopards. So I had to be patient and wait for my moment to take the pictures. That is the challenge when you want to take pictures of animals. Good thing that I had my Tamron 150-600mm lens with me. Otherwise I would not have gotten these close ups. I also bought a Canon 70D camera body that I used to take these pictures. I will be doing a review of Canon 70D in another segment. I will be uploading some more pictures of some interesting looking birds in the coming post. For now you can enjoy these pictures.

Camouflage for Tamron 150-600 mm lens
So you have bought the lens and is thinking what next to buy. I was looking at some camouflage for the lens which I have seen on canon and nikon lenses. I do not know if the camouflage works in the nature but since most professional wildlife photographers have it on their lenses I thought it might be good for blending in.
I have looked at some different options and here are the ones I am thinking of getting:
Here is a site from UK selling camo for tamron 150-600mm lens. It is called Wildlife watching supplies. The camo cost around 38.38 punds incl VAT. On these camos there is no opening for the buttons on the left side of the lens. Although I think it is possible to just move the camos and open them if you need to adjust the buttons. There are different color and patterns to choose from. You also get 1.4x and 2.0x converter camos. To see how it looks click the link with the stores name on it.
Another option is a store called Outdoor photography gear, they sell camouflage for the Tamron 150-600mm lens with a plastic shield where the buttons are. It makes it more convenient when you want to change some settings. On the site they call the cover for “Neoprene Lens Protection Cover”. This site is also located in the UK. The price is 40 pund. You can coose between 2 different options the English Oak/Black or the Woodland Green/Black. To see how they look you have to click the link of the sites name.
Lenscoat.com now also have lens coats for Tamron 150-600mm, to find out more click here. There are also travel coats for Tamron 150-600mm on lenscoat.com. It is not the same as camouflage for the lens, it is more like a slim-fit bag for the lens. The store is from US. A lens coat cost 49.99-59.99 dollars.
