My name is Solomon. I recently moved to Brevard County, Florida from Asheville, NC to start my dream job. I work as a Wildlife Removal Tech all over the county and I love it!
I love wildlife and photographing animals in the wild, specifically reptiles. I spend most of my free time in the field searching for snakes to photograph.
I am new to the photography hobby, well, as far as photography with a more professional type camera than the cybershot, but I am loving my Canon Rebel T3i! I only have the standard 55mm lens that came with the camera, but I have plans to get a macro lens and a zoom lens. I met some birders in the Viera Wetlands who had some impressive gear and gave me some ideas for what I need.
Here are a few of my recent photos. Disclaimer: I'm still learning how to edit photos.
Looking at your photos in this message, I would have to say that you really don't have that much to learn about editing photos.
I do believe that you will be happy with the images that a Canon T3i can produce, but you will need some other lenses for wildlife photography. I highly recommend the new Tamron 150-600mm lens for your main go to lens. It's cost is only $1069 which is extremely low cost for a lens that has a 600mm reach. That's the lens I have been using for about 6 months now. Best purchase I have ever made. As to a Macro lens I can't be of help as I have never used one.
Love the images you have posted, and look forward to seeing your future work............
Welcome to the forum. I like the shots you posted so far. In your line of work you're used to get close so the 55mm lens works. I hope to see more from you.

As Ira and Hunter said, 150/600 and 55mm will do, I will suggest another one such as 17/70 Sigma, good lens for the price and quality of pictures. Like the others said, WELCOME to a great forum with very knowledgeable and down to earth people.!
