Cardinal in the snow.
EF-S 55-250 at 171 mm, 1/320 sec at f/5.6, ISO 800, polarizing filter.
My mother-in-law gave me this lens after her camera got stolen, and I like it quite a bit for an inexpensive lens. With a 1.6 x crop body, you get a nice boost on the telephoto end, so 250 = 400mm. And I am happy with the IQ.
