Sometimes you just don’t have time to fumble around your camera bag looking for the right lens. That’s why whenever I am driving I keep a camera and lens at the ready and close by, allowing me to just pull over, grab and go.
This image of the bison is a perfect example of that exact situation. He was walking in the field next to the road, and the birds were flying around his head then landing on his back. I pulled over, grabbed my camera with the Tamron 18-400mm Di II VC PZD and ran to the other side of the road to get a better angle, just in time to capture two birds flying right at his head with four still perched on his back. This moment lasted only about 2 or 3 minutes as he turned to the left and started walking away.
Being ready is the key to capturing these types of moments and having an all in one lens with this type of focal range allows you to be ready for almost anything.
