900mm on an APS-C camera - that is what it takes to get a nice view like this!

Wow, what a beautiful creature that is!

Approximately how far away were you when you took the shot?

Nice images from an "old" lens. I never did so well with mine so I sold it.

Thanks swip! While it's a sharp lens it really needs a focus limiter to keep from racking from infinity to minimum focus and back.
