Crop from a photo taken with a Sigma 300mm f/2.8

No birds in this one.... Just a tree rat.

lol the people who posted in the "photos you dislike" thread would be pulling their hair out at this one

Please let me know if you hate cars and/or airplanes, and I'll refrain from those

Film shot, MX, FA 80-320...want to say 250mm (it's a shop scan so not great)

all very cool. I dont hate birds, I love them like anyone else does... just like to see other examples of long, really long tele lenses that don't include bird photos.

Any other examples?
