You want to know if that lens is good for sport photography: yes it is, especially if you have good light!

Let's go for another one done today!

Goglu des prés / Bobolink [Dolichonyx oryzivorus] ♂

This bird is getting hard to see in our region because their breeding spaces, the wild meadowlands, are getting scarce. In the absence of wild meadowlands, bobolinks nest in farm fields where the young fall prey to the combine. We need to leave them some hayfields that aren’t harvested until mid-July... Please pass the word on farmers!

They were a couple around the house yesterday... We normally see them for for a couple days during the migrations. Hope they will stay a bit, they are nice subjects to shoot!

This is from a F*250-600/5.6, but it's optically identical to the FA* version.

Not a particularly good photo, but I still like it. It is taken with Q7 and F*250-600/5.6 and shows Jupiter and 4 of its moons.

Edit: I believe it is 4 moons. Correct me if I am wrong
