This is a relatively new-to-me lens, but the more I use it, the more I like it. This was taken at about 260mm.

Thanks, EagleM. Now, if I could only attract some birds with more color! There's only so much you can do with shades of brown & gray!

Wow! You made this lens sing. Sure the colours are not brilliant yet the details and texture are beautifully sculpted by the light.

Thanks for the compliments, fellas. I'm almost embarrassed to say that I paid $20 bucks and a box of .22 ammo for the lens!
