Definitely not birds.
Tokina 400/5.6 on the LX. Hand-held long before SR in the polar nigth, Arctic Ocean, around 85 degrees North if I remember correctly. Only light source is some headlamps. Fujichrome 400 ISO. Scanned on a crappy flat bed scanner, will do it better on the film scanner some day.



Hard to see it, right? Hope you didn't forget to bring your gun?

"Mmh, either the seals learned to walk on their back flippers, or this is the foot prints of some two-three very crispy scientists...realy fat and tasty."

I use F/FA 300mm lens mainly for birds and wild lives, but I quite like to use it for some people shots too:

Admittedly I find most of my long shots are of birds but the other 2/3rd's of them have a variety fo subjects from frozen rivers to four legged critters. All photos from Tokina 80-400 at 400mm.

Borno, that last two shots are just wow. I wish I was there to see the scene in person.... but wait, this is telephoto lens isn't it? so you can only see it through the viewfinder.

Found some old shots I had forgotten about.

All taken with long lens' from 500-1000mm.

The most extreme shot is of the rabbit taken with 1000mm FL lens at prime focus barlowed to an effective FL of 2000mm (60x). Full frame at about 120 feet I think.
