ok, BONUS POINTS for all responses except none for the one talking about biscuit crumbs
I'm sensing a distinct feeling of being singled out... when it comes to the sharing out of bonus points here.

Especially so, after my super relevant post number nine on this thread.

In my case the black finish on the 1000/8 lens gets real hot in the Florida sun.
"Hubble Jr" is thus covered with stretchable 1/16" custom sewn neoprene/lycra sections in lime green.
Cost was less than $20 from an eBay supplier.
Here shown in the wild on a beach in the Everglades:

Nice shot of a Würdemann's Heron. I've never seen it in the wild. (It's the rare intermediate between the blue morph and the white morph of the Great Blue Heron. The white morph is also known as the Great White Heron. Not to be confused with the Great Egret, which is also all white.)

Thanks, I've got to get my Heron's straight!

Did not know there was a name for that type, so I went with a generic 'Heron'..

Here are some more birds from the Everglades shot with various lenses. The Osprey head shots are with the 1000/8.
My latest is a $15 Bell & Howell 'Telate' 3 inch f/4.5 that is a 420mm equivalent on the Q - the Roseate Spoonbills flying.

The Everglades are for the birds! | kayakfari ( kayak .. far .. i )
