Q: My sister in-law recently gave me a Canon EOS 10D digital camera body. Having only used point and shoot cameras, what would be a good beginners lens to get for this camera? Should I get kit lens to start with?

A: Do you know?

This poor manatee has a bad cut and hematoma on it's backside. The whole area has been hunting for her and her calf for weeks. She showed up at my dock this morning and I was able to get the pictures the wildlife officers have been wanting to see. Hope we can get her some treatment or she may be ok. She was eating eel grass and resting in the shallows.

PS

She gave birth sometime between being at my dock and later in the evening. She was spotted early this morning with a new born calf. The FWC said they had no boat to come out but would send a biologist with a kayak. As the state and feds usually do it was a no show.

    Just to update my photo. It appears the state of Florida Wildlife has determined since they have seen my photos they need to come and rescue this manatee. Pictures do some good.

    She has had a calf since I took this picture. She was several docks over this morning 7/3 and had a new baby. She was acting very sluggish at my dock when I took the above picture on 7/2.

    Kudos for your contribution to the rescue - whether the authorities actually help or not. I hope they are both OK!
