I Have a query and need advise. Recently upgraded to Canon 80D with 18-135mm kit lens (Was using Canon 500 D earlier). I would like to buy a decent telephoto lens in budget. Is Canon 70-300mm a good choice for wildlife ( I may want to rent out 100-400 or higher ones when going for birding or wildlife) but for buying which will be a suitable one in budget. Still have the 55-250mm from before. Kindly advise.
The 75-300 is still an ok lens for wildlife. And it also depends which one as there are multiple ones. The entry level 75-300 is not that great compared to the 55-250 lens. So you need to check the review of lens online and then decide. Good option is to rent the 100-400 IS2 for your trips.
Fantastic shot. Love the background effect that you have been able to create.

I personally felt that the subject has got the catch light and the eyes are well lit. Followed the rule of thirds. Received a good feedback in my friends group. Would like to know if I could have done something more to make it even better.
Lucky enough got to see the animal not frequently seen so close. Distance was so close by that unable to zoom out quickly and did not wanted to miss the opportunity so keeping the lense at its full zoom , captured the portrait. Lovely eyes with a terrific stare and the slow stalking added the punch into the image. Morning low light compelled to shoot up the ISO little bit to achieve the descent shutter speed. As the animal was not moving quickly shutter speed 1/160 was enough to capture the action.
