I recently had the pleasure of spending some time hanging out with Queen Elizabeth, and I must say, it was wonderful!
Now, before you label me a lunatic or dub me a fabricator of falsehood, let me confess that I borrowed Her Majesty’s name and assigned it to my latest lens – a fresh out of the box 300mm f/4 fixed lens. (Btw – I know I am learning a little about photography because those numbers are starting to make sense to me now!)
I haven’t had a ton of time to get fully acquainted with this new lens, but I’ll go ahead and share ten photos of birds that seemed more than happy to pose for a picture. Perhaps they knew they were in the presence of royalty!

Male Pine Warbler
Typically, when I take pictures of my backyard birds, I use a 100-400mm lens that I affectionately call Beowulf. I’m pretty sure he and Queen Elizabeth are going to get along famously!
