Wildlife in front of the full frame

Coming up on the third year running FF for wildlife photography I felt like sharing some of the work over this time frame.
This work of the Common Snipe I was using the 200-400 F/4 along with a 1.7 TC and the D800
Wide open I am just amazed with how little detail is lost.
warning they are somewhat large file sizes

stopped down only improves the level we see

This is my favorite of the bunch

I'd love to say they are fantastic shots, and I'm sure they really are - but for me they are completely ruined by that obnoxious watermark. Really, is it necessary?

Since moving to Nikon I am still on the fence on FF vs APSC for wildlife since I crop most of my photos a lot, even with the 800mm Sigma.
If you could pm me your experience, it would be much appreciated

those pics are clean, especially for a zoom/tc combo.

Some more work with the D800 and the bare 200-400




The year this was taken the biting insects was horrendous any small wound they would be in it not to mention your eyes,ears and mouth.
you can see on the back legs how they further aggravated the wounds on her legs

Ian, you need to add an extra line when posting to separate your images like this:





BTW, nice shooting!
