I had a really busy day and as I was coming home from running errands I saw horses on a farm. The horses were really close to the road, but by the time I turned around and parked, the horses had walked really far. So, I used the zoom lens. I used a new lens I got this week and I am getting use to it. I took many pictures, but I was not completely happy with the sharpness of the pictures and/or some distracting background.
