Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything!

    This is when a zoom lens is a must. You might not live to tell about the photo if you used a standard lens to get this close. Great shot by the way! :)

  • Big smile and you are so right.. better to keep distance

    Volgens mij was je met die lange lens so close to its beak, he could eat the first section of it.!

    Excellent John!! – I have the sigma 150-500mm but haven’t had chance to use it yet lol – I am going to Nova Scotia very soon so hoping to take it with me.

  • I am VERY curious to see your shots..
    I find the results better when the auto focus was of and ajustings done by hand
    What you think ?
