Fall Waterfowl - FA*250-600/5.6
Posted By: Sirfishalot, 11-16-2008, 11:27 PM

I was out with the big lens & K20D yesterday shooting with a friend at our local urban wildlife refuge. Not a whole lot happening in terms of bird sightings, but we did come across a few Mergansers. I wish I had been using a higher ISO to stop some of the action, but I was a little concerned about potential noise. I did try a few with the 1.4X Tamron TC and they weren't too bad.

1) Female Hooded Merganser

1/500s f/6.7 at 600.0mm iso400

2) Another female struttin'

1/250s f/6.7 at 600.0mm iso100

3) Pair of Hoodies

1/350s f/6.7 at 600.0mm iso100

4) Pie-billed Grebe (surprisingly good IQ with TC)

1/180s f/5.6 at 840.0mm iso400

Thanks for looking/commenting,

Congradulation on this wonderful zoom. Wow I must say. The rendering is just so different.

Very nice shots, our birds are gone for the winter other than the chickadees and a few woodpeckers...
