I wanted the 300 mm but didn't have time to go get it. It was very cloudy and dim all day so I set up on the porch to grab some bird shots, then I seen the Skipper. It's a wonder any of it is in focus at all as my giant 17 lb cat was impeding my concentration by bumping the tripod and pawing my leg with his giant claws. �� Lol, looking at it I was thinking "What's with the wacky ISO on that one shot?" Oh.... cat distraction...
