A few from today. I got wet as did the camera and lens. My only issue was my glasses and the viewfinder being so foggy that I couldn't see. AF worked just fine.
A Veery.

I have deleted the contributing raw files, but they were about f/8, 1/400 and ISO125 if I recall correctly.
Thanks!

As promised in post 12286, (belatedly): comparison 100% crops Kr + Tamron Nestar 400mm (top) vs Lumix G2 + Tamron adaptamatic 300mm (below), both therefore 600mm equivalent. Similar pp from RAW. Obedient Little Egret hung around near the hide.






Overall the adaptamatic showed more PF and is IMO softer at f5.6 than the Nestar at f6.9 (both were wide open), but both images are pretty pleasing with quite a lot of detail.

Addendum well they are 100% crops but they've been auto resized. I have converted the images into links to view full size.

Finally got a decent shot of the Road Runner at my in-law's last weekend. This one has been sneaking around but always finds me when I don't have my camera.


I also got another glimpse of the Golden Eagle pair that hunt around their property. One day I'll get close for something good.

Love the road runner, haven't seen one in the wild for quite a while. Got to get back to the SW desert soon!

Feeble attempts? The first shot in particular is brilliant! The last one is blurred, but considering the circumstances that's probably not surprising.

I have been shooting hummers with flash (lots of them) but when it comes to capturing the colours of the iridescent gorgets I do prefer the natural lighting - nice job.

Hey thanks I appreciate that. Compared to what I see many that post here I consider my attempts...well, feeble Anyway I am totally enamored with wildlife photography and Hummers and Raptors in particular. I just got into the hobby around a year ago and have been enjoying it immensely. I like to catch hummers with natural light as I would not even know how to capture them with flash. They visited my feeders quite a lot during the spring migration, now I seem to have just a resident few. Usually the fall migration is much busier. The last shot was very difficult, low light and having trouble zeroing in the focus. I love my DA*300 but sometime I wish it were faster!
