Wonderful to see these birds hunt in the early evening.

Nikon D700, 500mm lens, ISO320, f/7.1, 1/500sec, +1 step.Tripod.

(Yes, I know I was supposed to take the hire lens back yesterday but I couldn’t part with it. You understand…)

Feeling satisfied with a new photograph … that makes it a good day.

    Oh, I know the gear and the lens don’t make the photograph, but I’m so glad you got that lens, Nadine. This is crisp, beautiful, and with a story! Excellent work! (and, of course, a fav)

    p.s. I think you made wise decision with the lens. How did you manage a blue sky with this one compared with yesterday’s shot?

  • thanks so much, jan – the difference in the sky was down to clouds one day and clear blue the next!

    Excellent shot, Nadine !
    500 mm – something new ?

  • thanks, stan – yes, I hired the 500mm for 2 weeks and then negotiated to buy the hire lens as I knew it worked fine. What a treat!
