Before I went to Peru, I decided to my new lens on a few test runs. This was my first trip to the International Crane Foundation in Baraboo, Wisconsin. I wanted to go there because, in a single visit, I could see every species of crane that exists on the planet. Being able to test my lens was just a bonus.
Being able to see the texture on the iris of a crane was what made me think that I was probably going to keep that lens.
