Not my usual thing - bird shots
Posted By: simonkit, 02-10-2008, 11:54 AM

Went for a coastal walk on the Isle of anglesey in North Wales today but landscape shots were impossible, heavy fog !!

Changed to my Tamron 70-300 & tried something different, this guy was happy to pose for me

Nice sharp shot Simon. Looks like you managed to get pretty close. What degree of zoom were you using on the Tamron?
